Toronto International Film Festival 2019
Toronto International Film Festival begins on the 5th September and we are excited to see that this year’s programme includes five films involving Air-Edel.
‘The Personal History of David Copperfield’, directed by Armando Iannucci begins the festival with its world premiere. Iannucci brings his sardonic wit — and a stellar cast that includes Dev Patel, Tilda Swinton, Hugh Laurie, Gwendoline Christie, Peter Capaldi, and Ben Whishaw — to Charles Dickens’ classic autobiographical novel.

‘Hope Gap’ is also receiving its world premiere at the festival and tells of a together-forever couple (Annette Bening and Bill Nighy) unpack the many complications of splitting up, in Oscar-nominated writer-director William Nicholson’s razor-sharp drama.
Music Supervisor: Maggie Rodford
‘The Two Popes’. In 2013, progressive incoming Pope Francis (Jonathan Pryce) and conservative outgoing Pope Benedict (Anthony Hopkins) debate the best path forward for the Catholic Church, in this surprisingly funny chamber piece from Oscar-nominated director Fernando Meirelles (City of God).
Music Editor: Timeri Duplat
TIFF hosts the North American premiere of ‘The Burnt Orange Heresey’. an ambitious art critic steals a rare painting and becomes consumed by his own greed as the operation spins out of control, in Giuseppe Capotondi’s (The Double Hour) thriller based on Charles Willeford’s noir novel and starring Elizabeth Debicki, Donald Sutherland, Claes Bang, and Mick Jagger.
Music Supervisor: Laura Katz
The world premiere of ‘Radioactive’ is closing the festival. Based on Lauren Redniss’s award-winning graphic novel, Marjane Satrapi’s (Persepolis) biopic stars Rosamund Pike as two-time Nobel Prize–winning scientist Marie Curie, highlighting the groundbreaking discoveries she made with her husband, Pierre (Sam Riley).
