One of several gala premieres dotting the Toronto landscape on opening night was The Brave One, starring Jodie Foster as a New York talk show who takes justice into her own hands after vicious attackers in Central Park kill her fiance and leave her for dead. I'll be writing more about the film a little later over on Screening Gotham, but in the interim, I visited the red carpet to chat up director Neil Jordan and co-star Terrence Howard about vigilante politics and the stunningly regressive, smoldering NYC depicted in the film. We also caught up with Spout Blog's Karina Longworth to review some of her recommendations and anticipations for the festival ahead.
Stay tuned for lots and lots more of ReelerTV @ TIFF, and remember you can discuss The Brave One and many of Toronto's titles at Spout.
