A Glimpse of Toronto’s Film Festival 2019 –


In the past few months, many movies have been released into the World, through the help of the Venice, Telluride and Toronto film festivals majorly. The article wishes to save your time and energy, by presenting to you some of the top picked movies by the chief critics, Owen Gleiberman and Peter Debruge.

A Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood (Toronto)

The movie is directed by Marielle Heller and is written along the lines of Tom Junod’s 1998 Esquire story. In this amazing piece of art, Tom Hanks is seen as playing Fred Rogers, who is the cardigan-sweatered kid's TV star. He is shown as the one who makes one belief in too-good-with- sort of a man, who is all about believing. One can say that the movie is no less than a sweet tale.

Dolemite Is My Name (Toronto)

The movie directed by Craig Brewer & is written by Larry Karaszewski and Scott Alexander. The movie is sort of a Blaxploitation version of the movie “The Disaster Artist”. Seeing Ray stage his kinda independent blaxploitation crime-thriller production is literally eye candy.

Bad Education (Toronto)

The movie is directed by Cory Finley and written by Mike Makowsky. The movie more or less has a sensational aura to it, wherein the audience is in a way positioned in a way to watch a whirlpool of immorality which gets deeper and deeper. The movie basically speaks in volume about the fascination with quality schools, in a time-zone of clutched opportunities, which has become both corrupt and desperate.

Ema (Venice, Toronto)

The movie is a Chilean drama, directed by Pablo Larrain and written by Guillermo Calderon and Alejandro Moreno. The movie projects human supernova named Mariana Di Girolamo as a rebellious reggaeton dancer; every step and action that she takes is seen in the light of her test for her place in the society. The thing that Ema deeply yearn for is to experience motherhood, and since her husband isn’t able to give her that for a shot to consider adoption bombed in a huge way, she decides to go for an alternate plan. “Ema” seems to challenge one’s biases about gender, female agency and relationships in general.
