Can Trumbo rise above its award baiting, self-congratulatory Hollywood biopic trappings?
We speak with director Jay Roach about bringing Dalton Trumbo's life to screen and how he avoided getting typecast as solely a comedy director.
Here are trailers and clips for films in the TIFF Special Presentations programme.
This week at the video store, we check out the timely comedy of The Campaign, the out of time Oliver Stone thriller Savages, the zombie apocalypse of [REC]3: Genesis, the romantic dramedy stylings of A Little Bit of Heaven and Ruby Sparks, and the goings on in the world of Mad Men.
The Campaign tries to strike a balance between R-rated raunch comedy and political satire and it comes surprisingly close to pulling it off. Ultimately, it’s more about the baby punching and wife-banging, but more than enough of those gags land to make it worth your money and laughter.
