The Cave - The GBY

The Cave

Day 9 2019 TIFF started with a screening of  The Cave at the TIFF Lightbox.  A powerful documentary about a female pediatrician struggling to keep her patients alive during the Syrian Civil War.  This film left us with quite a few questions.

Beneath the Suburban Skies - The GBY

Beneath the Suburban Blue Skies

We stayed at TIFF for our next film, Edward Burns latest film, Beneath the Blue Suburban Skies.   Shot in black & white, this is a story about what can happen when your children don’t leave home.   Burns does a good job of creating the sense of their existence.

We stopped by Hey, Lucy’s, one of our favorite restaurants.  After a quick lunch, we walked over to the Princess of Wales theater for a screening of Blackbird.  A poignant movie about important issues with an all-star cast.

Our final movie of the day was How to Build a Girl at the ScotiaBank theater.   This is a fun movie based on a true story.  The performances are great and there a few very funny lines.
