    Javier Bardem, Gael García Bernal, Angelina Jolie and Helen Mirren will headline a series of public conversations about their careers as part of this year’s Toronto Film Festival.
    Many of these actors and filmmakers aren’t just trekking to Canada to take a jaunt down memory lane. They’re also on hand to launch new films. Bardem stars in “mother!,” Darren Aronofsky’s upcoming horror film, and “Loving Pablo,” both of which will debut at the festival. Jolie is bringing “First They Killed My Father,” a drama about the Cambodian genocide that she made for Netflix, to the gathering. Mirren is appearing opposite Donald Sutherland in “The Leisure Seeker,” another festival entry. And Bernal will be seen in “If You Saw His Heart,” which will screen at the event.

    I don’t know the ins and outs of TIFF, but I think FTKMF has a good spot.

    I would also think Netflix and Angie are feeling confident about the film if she is also going to be doing this talk session as well.

  • toastie postie

    You are welcome – It’s been updated. More screenings. I missed several on both films.

  • Seriously

    Looks like Angelina finally hired some paid commenters to get herself out of her self-inflicted PR mess. Weird how they are all posting basically the same thing over and over again. Is that from a script?

  • Felinelilly

    Hey WB&TJ, thanks for posting. What’s Brad’s Status again?

  • William Bradley & The Jolie

    This is the description from IMDb

    “A father takes his son to tour colleges on the East Coast and meets up
    with an old friend who makes him feel inferior about his life’s choices”

  • Felinelilly

    Oh ok, but how is Brad involved with this movie? Did Plan B produce it?

  • Beedyq
  • Felinelilly

    Ok thanks. I don’t think he needs to be there just for that, but maybe he’ll surprise. Who knows.

  • Beedyq

    Who knows is exactly right..lol.

  • Felinelilly

    Yep. lol

  • William Bradley & The Jolie

    Okay, I have to go.

    I hope to check in later.

    Have a great day!

    In Conversation With… Angelina Jolie

    An actor, director, producer, and humanitarian with unstoppable dynamism, Angelina Jolie joins us to discuss her most recent projects, First They Killed My Father and The Breadwinner, at the Festival this year.

    Angelina Jolie has forged a boundary-pushing path as an actor, director, producer, and humanitarian. Jolie’s roles in Hackers, Gia, and her Academy Award—winning performance in Girl, Interrupted were marked by a transfixing onscreen presence and a restless, mercurial energy that earned her early recognition in the film industry. Having made a deep imprint in Hollywood through lead roles in the Lara Croft franchise, Salt, and Maleficent, and her acclaimed performances in A Mighty Heart and Changeling, Jolie has subsequently devoted herself to humanitarianism and socially conscious projects. For over 15 years she has given her time and energy as a dedicated UNHCR Ambassador and Special Envoy. As a storyteller, Jolie routinely shakes up the status quo, her passion fuelling such poignant directorial works as In the Land of Blood and Honey and Unbroken. At this year’s Festival we present her most recent projects, First They Killed My Father and The Breadwinner

    Brad’s Status

    While touring colleges with his teenage son, an introspective, middle-aged family man (Ben Stiller) can’t help but compare himself to his more successful cohort of old friends (Luke Wilson, Jemaine Clement, and Michael Sheen), in acclaimed writer Mike White’s second directorial feature.

    A true cinematic polymath, Mike White possesses a singular vision that infuses the breadth of his output as writer, actor, producer, and director. White’s second feature as director is his most fully realized statement, plumbing the themes of dissatisfaction and obsessive envy that have been intrinsic to his work since his brilliant screenplay for 2000′s Chuck & Buck. With a cast that includes Ben Stiller, Luke Wilson, and Michael Sheen, Brad’s Status examines those nagging anxieties many harbour but few admit to.

    Brad Sloan (Stiller) has a steady job, a comfortable home in Sacramento, a loving wife, and a talented son he’s set to accompany on a tour of prospective colleges. But Brad can’t stop comparing himself to his old buddies, all of whom have found wealth and renown in fields ranging from hedge funds to Hollywood movies to political punditry. Brad should be devoting his energies to supporting his son’s transition into higher education, but all he can think of is showing off what he doesn’t actually have or desperately grasping at his former cohorts’ spoils.

    Hilarious and poignant, this wise comedy neither shies away from the absurdity of its protagonist’s complaints nor denies the depths of his existential crisis. As with all of White’s projects, from The Good Girl to TV’s Enlightened, Brad’s Status speaks to our most uncomfortable feelings — and finds dignity in the unvarnished truth.

    FTKMF

    Angelina Jolie co-produces, co-writes, and directs this adaptation of the memoir by Loung Ung, which recounts the author’s horrifying childhood experiences under the murderous Khmer Rouge regime in her native Cambodia.

    Between 1975 and 1979 Cambodia’s Khmer Rouge regime committed a genocide that resulted in the deaths of as many as three million people. Loung Ung survived.

    The second youngest of seven children born to upper-middle-class parents in Phnom Penh, Loung leaves her comfortable life behind when the Khmer Rouge army storms the city in April 1975. As she flees with her family to the countryside in an old pickup truck with only a small suitcase each, gone are the days of afternoon dance parties, breezy balconies and long, lazy lunches. Concealing their bourgeois roots and her father’s past as a high-ranking official, they eventually settle in a labour camp, where luxury now means secretly roasting crickets under the cover of night.

    Based on her deeply affecting personal memoir, First They Killed My Father: A Daughter of Cambodia Remembers, Ung’s story is powerfully brought to the screen by writer-director Angelina Jolie (who appears as a guest in this year’s In Conversation With… programme). Her textured script, complemented by Anthony Dod Mantle’s lush photography, balances vivid moments of everyday life with the sweeping terrors of war. Scenes of shocking violence and cruelty are coupled with meditative dreamlike passages that evoke Terrence Malick’s The Thin Red Line. But the weight of this tragedy is offset by the strength of its protagonists. Young Srey Moch Sareum delivers a moving and expressive performance as Loung Ung. Intelligent and resolute, Loung carefully observes the changing, destructive world around her. Clinging to the special bond she shares with her father, she is determined to survive so that the memories of a life gone by can live on.
