It’s that time of year when Toronto gets hit with a happy mob of movie fans and is crawling with Hollywood’s biggest stars. More than 300 films from 60 countries will screen at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, running September 4 to 14. For movie fanatics, it’s sometimes hard to choose which movies to see.
Luckily, TIFF has an impressive movie roster this year, including St. Vincent, which will debut on tiff’s “Bill Murray Day,” (a special honour to the actor), the Stephen Hawking biopic The Theory of Everything, the Jake Gyllenhaal thriller Nightcrawler, Channing Tatum and Steve Carrell’s Foxcatcher and the Reese Witherspoon drama Wild—plus many more features and documentaries worth watching.
Here’s a list of the top ten most buzzed about films this year based on story and performances, to get you started.
The Imitation Game
The film follows the story of Genius British mathematician, logician, cryptologist and computer scientist who led the charge to crack the German Enigma Code that helped the Allies win WWII. Turing went on to assist with the development of computers at the University of Manchester after the war, but was prosecuted by the UK government in 1952 for homosexual acts, which the country deemed illegal. Starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Keira Knightley, Matthew Goode, Mark Strong, Rory Kinnear, Charles Dance, Allen Leech, Matthew Beard.

While We’re Young

Also starring Amanda Seyfried, Adam Driver, Charles Grodin, Maria Dizzia and Adam Horovitz.
Maggie (McCarthy), a single mother, moves into a new home in Brooklyn with her 12-year old son, Oliver. Forced to work long hours, she has no choice but to leave Oliver in the care of their new neighbor, Vincent (Murray), a retired curmudgeon with a penchant for alcohol and gambling. An odd friendship soon blossoms between the improbable pair. Together with a pregnant stripper named Daka (Watts), Vincent brings Oliver along on all the stops that make up his daily routine—the race track, a strip club, and the local dive bar. Vincent helps Oliver grow to become a man, while Oliver begins to see in Vincent something that no one else is able to: a misunderstood man with a good heart. Starring Bill Murray, Melissa McCarthy, Chris O’Dowd, Naomi Watts
After years of reckless behaviour, a heroin addiction and the destruction of her marriage, Cheryl Strayed makes a rash decision.

Starring Reese Witherspoon, Laura Dern, Thomas Sadoski, Michiel Huisman, Gaby Hoffmann and Kevin Rankin.

This Is Where I Leave You

Blurring the line between observer and perpetrator, Lou finds his calling in a murderous world reduced to transactions. Starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Rene Russo, Riz Ahmed and Bill Paxton.
Map of the Stars
Director David Cronenberg forges both a wicked social satire and a very human ghost story from today’s celebrity-obsessed culture. Starring Julianne Moore, Mia Wasikowska, Olivia Williams, Sarah Gadon, John Cusack and Robert Pattinson.
Oh and one more….
Mike Leigh beautifully directs Cannes Best Actor Timothy Spall in this biopic about British painter J.M.W Turner. Mr. Turner” explores the last quarter century of the great if eccentric British painter J.M.W. Turner. Profoundly affected by the death of his father, loved by a housekeeper he takes for granted and occasionally exploits sexually, he forms a close relationship with a seaside landlady with whom he eventually lives incognito in Chelsea, where he dies. Throughout this, he travels, paints, stays with the country aristocracy, visits brothels, is a popular if anarchic member of the Royal Academy of Arts, has himself strapped to the mast of a ship so that he can paint a snowstorm, and is both celebrated and reviled by the public and by royalty.
