Day 11 2019 TIFF, our final day. So much anticipation and now it’s over. Our first screening was at the TIFF Bell Lightbox at 9 a.m.! Radioactive, a biopic about Marie Curie. An in-depth story, that was interleaved with vignettes regarding in the good and bad of scientific discoveries.
Our Rating for “Radioactive”

Then we walked up to the Ryerson theater to see the much talked about Jojo Rabbit. Billed as a satirical anti-hate movie, it seemed to be a Don’t Hate Hitler movie. I thought it might have been funny if the Hitler character had been a giant rabbit. Nothing about Hitler or the Nazi’s is funny. Unfortunately, this film won the 2019 TIFF People’s Choice Award. I am struggling with what that signifies.

Our final film was Clemency, this year’s winner at Sundance. This is a death penalty movie that focuses on the prison employees that administer the lethal injection and how they were variously affected. I didn’t really feel that this film went anywhere.
Our Rating for “Clemency”
We went back to our apartment to have a drink after those last two movies. Then we walked to Gusto’s 101 one last time. Sunday night’s special is the lasagna with Italian sausage, it was delicious. Tomorrow we are off for a spa day to help us recuperate from all of this hard work. We are back home on Tuesday and more exciting films this fall. We’ll post more in depth reviews and recipes when the films hit the theaters.
