Toronto Film Fest: No Scorsese, But Bruce Springsteen, Tom Hanks, “Motherless Brooklyn,” Todd Philip’s “Joker,” Almodovar and Banderas

Share

The 2019 Toronto Film Festival looks pretty swell. No Scorsese “Irishman,” but everything else we need, want, and expect including Tom Hanks in the Mister Rogers movie “Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood,” Bruce Springsteen’s “Western Stars,” Edward Norton’s “Motherless Brooklyn,” Pedro Almodovar’s “Pain and Glory” with Antonio Banderas’s Cannes winning performance, and Todd Philip’s “Joker.” They’ve also got Isabelle Huppert in “Frankie,” Renee Zellweger as “Judy,” and “The Goldfinch.”
