In today's review from the Toronto International Film Festival, you can read all about the role that Jennifer Lawrence is already getting Oscar buzz for and see what kind of investigative journalist Shia Labeouf is.

"The Company You Keep"

Grade: C

The major problem of "The Company You Keep" is the moral fiber of the piece. Making a film about an issue as dicey as the Weather Underground is, on the face of it, courageous, but "The Company You Keep" routinely avoids all judgments. Was the Weather Underground a necessary political instrument that actually saved lives by acting out in a violent manner? Or were they the same as terrorists the whole world round, their original intent severely corrupted by their deeds? Instead of getting into that, the film is much more comfortable throwing its hands in the air and saying, "Quick, look over there!" -Laremy Legel »
