Hathaway, Banderas to light up TIFF screens

The Toronto International Film Festival revealed five more high-profile films that will screen at this year’s event, which takes place September 4 through 13.

Jonathan Demme’s Rachel Getting Married will make its North American premiere via a Gala presentation. Anne Hathaway stars as the wisecracking Kym, who returns home for the wedding of her sister Rachel (Rosemarie DeWitt), bringing a long history of personal crisis and family conflict along with her.

The world premiere of Richard Eyre’s The Other Man will also receive the Gala treatment. The Notes on a Scandal director’s new picture tells the story of Peter (Liam Neeson) who discovers that his wife Lisa (Laura Linney) has been receiving emails and mobile messages from Ralph (Antonio Banderas), a man he never knew existed.

Organizers also unveiled three Special Presentations: Ed Harris’ world premiere Appaloosa stars Viggo Mortensen, Jeremy Irons and Renée Zellweger in the Old West territory of New Mexico; Anne Fontaine’s North American premiere La Fille de Monaco about a brilliant and neurotic attorney (Fabrice Luchini) who goes to Monaco to defend a famous criminal; and Philippe Claudel’s North American premiere I’ve Loved You So Long (Il y a longtemps que je t’aime), starring Kristin Scott Thomas and Elsa Zylberstein as two sisters reunited 15 years after a violent separation.
