Toronto Report # —3

The official opening press confrence is on the 17th and I won't be able to go 'cause it's in another country and my tickets aren't until the beginning of September.

I've seen one major flick already: Bob Gothwaite's Sleeping Dogs Lie which is a brave attempt to do something important, but fails. It was at Sundance.

AWAY FROM HER, Sarah Polley, UK/Canada (Gala Presentation)
