Dear Gossips,

A quick programming note: Marcus, our dog, needed an emergency blood transfusion yesterday and is still in hospital. We’ve been on standby as the situation can change quickly. If that’s the case, there may be a long interruption to the blog schedule.  Read Full Intro

JT's longing looks

Jimmy Fallon aired a new sketch featuring Justin Timberlake last night. I like it. Silly is always better when it's rooted in the recognisable and we've all seen scenes like this in a movie, on television, and have been embarrassingly moved by them. Another reason why this works, and why most of JT's bits with Fallon work, is that he's not alone. Full Story

Julianne Moore has Freeheld and Maggie’s Plan at TIFF this year. Julianne and Ethan Hawke were shooting Maggie's Plan at a Brooklyn ice rink barely 36 hours after they were on the Oscar red carpet in February. That's an instant humbling, isn't it? To leave the Oscars, leave the gifting suites and the Vanity Fair parties to schlep home to Brooklyn, gear up for winter and skate with Greta Gerwig and child actors, on camera. Full Story

We had the summer off from I Can’t Ariana Grande. It was great, wasn’t it? She must have sensed that we were in a good place. Because now she’s back, selling her own fragrance. If Johnny Depp smells like a savage longing for a wannabe rock career, what’s the scent of I Can’t Ariana Grande? Side parts and cotton ball mouth. Full Story

More TIFF double duty. Ethan Hawke has two films at TIFF too: Maggie's Plan and Born to be Blue. Just as Boyhood was catching fire in November, Ethan was hanging out in church basements in Sudbury, Ontario channeling his inner Chet Baker. I was on set. Chet Baker's a pretty coveted role - Leo, River Phoenix (!), Ryan Reynolds (what?) and Brad Pitt are among those who have fought to play this part, or expressed an interest in it. Full Story

I never used to get it about Benicio Del Toro. You know my type. Charlie Hunnam, Liam Hemsworth… But then I saw Sicario. After Spotlight, it’s my favourite film of TIFF. Like Spotlight, it’s not an easy story. This is two hours of stress and anxiety. But worth it. So worth it. Full Story

Ellen Page and her girlfriend Samantha Thomas made their red carpet debut at the world premiere of her movie Freeheld in Toronto on Sunday night. It's about the fight for equal rights in domestic partnerships, which eventually laid the groundwork for where we are now in the U. Full Story

Drake Doremus’s previous feature films are all concerned with love, and in Equals, his latest feature, it’s no different except that this time he comes at notions of sex, intimacy, and love from the angle of a society that typically lives without those things. Set in a post-apocalyptic future in which people live in “the Collective”, a nightmare hive of emotionless drones who have their emotions “switched off” in their DNA, Equals follows two young lovers, Silas (Nicholas Hoult) and Nia (Kristen Stewart). Full Story
