Melissa McCarthy is the perfect Lee Israel in 'Can You Ever Forgive Me?' (TIFF review)

Lee Israel was a bestselling author before she decided to make forgery her next profession. A job that suited her very well. Almost too well. — As Melissa McCarthy is perfectly cast as the washed-up writer Lee Israel, it's hard to imagine Julianne Moore was about to play her back in 2015. While Moore was at TIFF with her less than impressive role in 'Gloria Bell', Melissa McCarthy nails this dramatic performance, never overdoing it, but not dodging the occasional humor either.

Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali take a great road trip in 'Green Book' (TIFF review)

With 'Green Book' director Peter Farrelly goes solo and makes his most dramatic film yet. And as it turns out, it might be his best one too. — We follow Tony Lip (Viggo Mortensen), a bouncer from New York, after the nightclub he's been working is closed down. Needing the money he hears of a gig, driving around a doctor. That can't be too bad, he naturally thinks, without actually giving it another thought. But as it turns out, this will be the trip of a lifetime, one he'll always remember, that'll develop a lifelong friendship and be turned into a movie 50 years later.

'Let Me Fall' is an emotional rollercoaster about love and addiction (TIFF review)

With 'Let Me Fall' Icelandic director Baldvin Zophoníasson brings the most horrible, real and romantic story about addiction to #TIFF18 — What surprised me at TIFF so far is how subdued a lot of the movies are. Of course I can't speak for all the dozens and dozens of movies here, but Hollywood films like 'Boy Erased', 'Wildlife', 'Outlaw King' and 'Ben is Back' are all pretty soft, apart from the occasional gripping event.
