The latest from Paul Verhoeven, Ridley Scott, Anthony Minghella, Douglas McGrath and Patrice Lecontewill all premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival this year.
Festival organizers have booked world premieres for Minghella’s Breaking and Entering, about intersecting lives in London that stars Jude Law, Juliette Binoche, Robin Wright Penn and Vera Farmiga; and Scott’s A Good Year, the Russell Crowe movie about an investment banker who moves to southern France.
Both films will unspool at the fest, along with Leconte’s comedy Mon meilleur ami (My Best Friend), starringDaniel Auteuil and Dany Boon, and Verhoeven’s Zwartboek (Black Book), a Dutch-language thriller about a feisty German Jewish girl surviving World War II.
Closing Toronto this year is the world premiere of Michael Apted’s Amazing Grace, which stars Ioan Gruffudd, Romola Garai, Michael Gambon and Albert Finney.
The festival already announced that Canadian Inuit-language film The Journals of Knud Rasmussen will kick things off September 7th with a gala premiere.
