Director Peter Landesman on Bringing ‘Deep Throat’ to the Screen

Most films take at least a couple years to go from idea to the big screen, so trying to plot a release of something that aligns almost perfectly with current headlines of the moment is typically a fool’s game. But with the slow-drip revelations of high-level corruption, obstruction, lying and possibly other criminal behavior from another American presidential administration seemingly leasing a long-term parking spot in the news, writer-director Peter Landesman’s new film arrives at a particularly ripe moment, which no doubt accounts for the project’s full, pointed title.

Jake Gyllenhaal, Back to Toronto, Getting ‘Stronger’

Year after year Jake Gyllenhaal makes the Toronto Film Festival a regular stop in his calendar -that's because he's not an actor that chooses the easy path. He didn't hesitate to lose a lot of weight to portray a human vulture that preys on other people's misery in director Dan Gilroy’s Nightcrawler - which earned him his second Golden Globe nomination- just to gain it back and a few pounds more to play a failing boxer in Antoine Fuqua's Southpaw.

Julianne Moore, Living in ‘Suburbicon’

Julianne Moore has had a busy month, first hitting the Lido at the Venice Film Festival with co-star Matt Damon and filmmaker George Clooney for their movie Suburbicon, and now the 56-year-old Golden Globe-winning actress is being feted again, along with her co-star and director, at the Toronto Film Festival. Suburbicon stars Matt Damon as Gardner Lodge, a seemingly model husband and father living in the picture-perfect suburb of Suburbicon in the 1950s.
