If ever she wanted to be, Carey Mulligan could be a way bigger star or Jessica Chastain-like. She has game, she's a one-of-a-kind talent, and has a great sense of humour. She told Variety earlier this month that she hasn't really made a major studio movie since The Great Gatsby, and she's cool with that because she wasn't so into her performance Full Story

Armando Ianucci (Veep, In The Loop) is one of the best satirists working today—certainly the best working in narrative forms. His latest piece of satire is The Death of Stalin, a Cold War era comedy about, you guessed it, the death of Joseph Stalin. Or rather, it’s about the bureaucratic scramble that follows the death of Joseph Stalin, as his deputies and the members of the Central Committee of the Communist Party scramble for power. Full Story

Mildred Hayes (Frances McDormand) lives at the end of a lonely road in rural Missouri, the only thing marking her way are three decrepit billboards. She buys the ad rights for the billboards and up go three violently red billboards asking the town police chief why her daughter’s murderer still hasn’t been caught. Full Story

The other tennis movie that played at TIFF is Borg McEnroe, which was the opening night film because…someone at TIFF really likes tennis? It’s a tennis themed year. If you’re a big tennis fan, you might enjoy Borg McEnroe for its recreation of the 1980 Wimbledon finals in which Björn Borg and John McEnroe played a great, close match. Full Story

Chappaquiddick and the story of what happened to Mary Jo Kopechne in 1969, a loyal Kennedy family devotee and political campaign specialist, is kind of like the slogan for MTV's old show Diary: You think you know, but you have no idea (what it's like to be famous). Except, in this case, as per the film, we really still don't know what happened, but we do know that Ted Kennedy certainly made several missteps that did him no favours. Full Story

Darkest Hour begins as Neville Chamberlain is forced to resign as Prime Minister on the eve of World War II, and Winston Churchill is selected as his replacement after the more popular Lord Halifax—also a supporter of appeasement—passes up the opportunity. It’s a bit of political maneuvering on Halifax’s part—everyone expects Churchill to fail, and then Halifax can swoop in with a unified party behind him and a plan for peace before him. Full Story
