TIFF 2017 Adds ‘Molly’s Game’, New Louis C.K. Movie, and More

     August 15, 2017


There is too much good stuff at TIFF this year. Of course, that’s the case every year, but just when you think you’ve figured out how you’re going to see everything, they pile on more good-looking films.

TIFF just announced that they’ve added 38 movies to their Galas section. The latest films in the lineup include Chappaquiddick starring Jason Clarke as Ted Kennedy, The Florida Project (the new film from Tangerine director Sean Baker), I Love You, Daddy, which is Louis C.K.’s first feature directorial effort since Pootie Tang, Yorgos LanthimosThe Killing of a Sacred Deer, John Woo’s Manhunt, Mark Felt – The Man Who Brought Down the White House starring Liam Neeson, Aaron Sorkin’s directorial debut Molly’s Game, Redoubtable, the new film from The Artist director Michel Hazanavicius, and Brie Larson’s directorial debut Unicorn Store. Keep in mind that these are just the movies that have a hook; we have no idea what could break out at the festival.
