The Toronto International Film Festival, one of the initial awards season stops for films, unveiled most of its lineup this morning.
Reese Witherspoon, who has a busy fall ahead, will be supporting two films at the festival: Jean-Marc Vallée's Wild and Philippe Falardeau's The Good Lie. Jason Reitman, whose films have often made stops at Toronto, will make yet another trip to the festival with Men, Women & Children, while Jon Stewart's directorial debut, Rosewater, will have its world premiere.
Other notable films screening at the festival include Jake Gyllenhaal's Nightcrawler, which just released an odd promo, and Benedict Cumberbatch's Alan Turing biopic The Imitation Game. Foxcatcher, which got loads of awards buzz at Cannes, will have a gala screening, as will This Is Where I Leave You, the starry ensemble piece based on Jonathan Tropper's book.
While the opening film wasn't announced, Alan Rickman's second directorial effort, A Little Chaos, will be the closing night film. A Little Chaos is about a female landscape architect, played by Kate Winslet, in the court of King Louis XIV.
