‘Tis the season…the season for TIFF, that is! The Toronto International Film Festival announced the first round of films slated to premiere at this year’s fest, and there’s a lot we’re going to want to see. Here are just a few of the movies we’re looking forward to seeing at TIFF 2019.
IT’S A BEAUTIFUL DAY IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD
Tom Hanks is ready to make you cry. The actor stars as the beloved Mr. Rogers in the biopic directed by Marielle Heller (Can You Ever Forgive Me?). The film follows a cynical journalist (Matthew Rhys) whose perspective is changed when he’s tasked with writing a profile on the kind TV icon for Esquire.
We doubt you need any more anticipation for this upcoming comedy-drama, based on the viral New York magazine article about a group of strip-club employees who unite to rip off their Wall Street clients. After all, it stars Jennifer Lopez, Constance Wu, Cardi B, Lizzo and Riverdale‘s Lili Reinhart—what more could you ask for?
