Toronto Film Festival Adds Mick Jagger in “Burnt Orange Heresy,” and “The Aeronauts” from Amazon Studios with Eddie Redmayne, Felicity Jones


Mick Jagger is coming to the Toronto Film Festival. You can’t get always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you get what you need. And we need Mick! Jagger co-stars in “The Burnt Orange Heresy,” just added as a gala to TIFF. Also added is “The Aeronauts” from Amazon Studios with Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones. If this were a Miramax movie in 2002, it would win the Oscar. It’s about balloon racing in the 1800s.

Lots of great new special presentations, too, including the filmed version of Kerry Washington’s Broadway play, “American Son.” ​
