A Good, Solid TIFF

This year’s Toronto International Film Festival seems to have hit on all cylinders, a welcome change from the last couple of years, when TIFF was necessarily overshadowed by world events. Several Toronto critics were duly impressed by the mood of this year’s fest, in addition to praising the high quality of this year’s entries. Joanna Schneller may have summed up TIFF’s year: “It was a good, solid year for the festival. There hasn’t been that one great breakout film, but there are also fewer stinkers.”
