The Toronto International Film Festival is underway, and we're intrigued by a plethora of big-ticket and indie films showing at the fest this week. Several of our favorite novels have adaptions we can't wait to check out on the big screen, including Anna Karenina, Great Expectations, and On the Road. There's a documentary about a single woman having a baby in her 40s and a political mockumentary about a conservative housewife looking for answers in the Iowa Caucuses. And many star some of our favorite actresses, including Audrey Tautou, Kristen Wiig, Jennifer Lawrence, Rachel McAdams, and Greta Gerwig. Throw in sex addiction, call girls, teen pregnancy, and hysteria, and you've got quite an intriguing group of films.
In addition to Like Someone in Love and Paradise: Love, which both also showed at Cannes, here are the TIFF flicks drawing us in with their provocative plots on love triangles, female friendships, admirable women, the sex industry, and more.
