TIFF Day #11


Maya - The GBY

Our final day started with a walk to Cora’s, a Toronto staple.  Their breakfasts are a little large, but very tasty.  We left Karl and Tony behind to pick up the check when we left for the Scotiabank Theatre.  Screening number 33 was “Maya”.  This filmed turned out to be about a relationship between a selfish man and a teenage girl.  The scenery in India was stunning.  You might check out streaming sites if this interests you.

Michael left us to meet up with Karl and Tony.  They were going to the Hockey Hall Of Fame before Michael returned to Dallas.  We walked over to the TIFF Members Box Office to see about tickets to the Grolsch Peoples Choice Award screening.  We ended up working and waiting with some volunteers to find out the winning film.  We walked to Earl’s to eat and post the blog.  Yodit, a very nice volunteer, texted me that she had two tickets.  I walked back to the MBO, but by that time they had announced the winner, “Green Book”, which we had already seen.  Finished our meal and off to the Elgin Theater.

American Woman

American Woman - The GBY

“American Woman” is a very well done female driven movie.  It depicts how tragedy and adversity can change the trajectory of a life.  Sienna Miller, Christina Hendricks and Amy Madigan gave memorable performances.  I also thought that Aaron Paul and Alex Neustaedter had outstanding scenes.  Currently, this movie does not have a release date but we will keep you posted.

The Other Story

The Other Story - The GBY

Stopping off at Grace O’Malley’s one last time seemed like a great idea.  The bartender was very entertaining.  Running a little late, we made our final trek to the Scotiabank Theatre to see “The Other Story”.  We really enjoy Jewish films, and we were not disappointed.  This is a sensitive story about how your upbringing effects the choices you make as adults.  Also, how adults can make poor decisions in the name of their child’s best interest.  It was a very good movie to end the festival.  This movie also doesn’t have a release date, we will be looking for it.

We walked back to our apartment and Karl drove the four of us to the iconic Lakeview Restaurant, seen in ‘The Shape of Water”.  Our waitress was very effervescent.  After the tuna melt and B.E.S.T. we had to try the Key Lime Pie.  Not the intense green of the movie but very tangy.

There were many movies that caught our eye but we couldn’t fit into our schedule.  We will keep you apprised of their progress also.
