Toronto Film Review: ‘October Gale’

13 September 2014 1:15 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After scoring a modest sleeper success with the touristy romance “Cairo Time,” star Patricia Clarkson and writer-helmer Ruba Nadda reunite for the would-be suspenser “October Gale.” , and falls short as a character-driven drama as well. Polished but minor, the overly low-key results are unlikely to stir much theatrical excitement, though the pic should do Ok in ancillary formats.

(The fatal accident that claimed his life is never specified.) As part of an effort to move on, she decides she’ll spend some time alone at her family’s isolated longtime vacation cottage; the power boat that gets her there conks out during a subsequent pleasure ride, requiring her rescue by the local harbor master. Upon being dropped off, she gets a big surprise, finding a stranger, »

4 September 2014 11:46 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Those of us that bang the drum for more film and television work originated by women can enjoy a small victory dance today, as it seems the creative partnership between actress Patricia Clarkson and director Ruba Nadda will continue with the development of an hour-long romantic drama, titled Elisabeth.

Here’s nine things you probably don’t know about the Toronto Film Festival, which starts Sept. 5:

2. Opening Night

The Gala world preem of “The Judge” kicks off the fest, with the D-List (director David Dobkin, stars Robert Downey Jr. and Robert Duvall) hitting the red carpet. But opening-night thrills no longer revolve around one film. “Tokyo Tribe” from Sion Sono (helmer of 2013 Midnight aud award winner “Why Don’t You Play in Hell?”) and Marah Strauch’s feature bow, “Sunshine Superman,” launch, respectively, Midnight and Tiff Doc sidebars. »
