The Toronto International Film Festival announced its selections for the 2014 Masters, Vanguard, Midnight Madness, and documentaries programs on Tuesday.
The festival, in its 39th year, kicks off Sept. 4 with David Dobkin’s The Judge, a drama starring Robert Downey, Jr. as a big-time lawyer who returns home to defend his father (Robert Duvall) in court. While The Judge is an American film, the movie selections unveiled hail from all over the world—Japan, New Zealand, and Spain are just a few of the countries represented—and involve a number of well-known actors and filmmakers.
The Face of an Angel, which stars Daniel Brühl, Kate Beckinsale, and Cara Delevingne, will make its world premiere at the Masters Program, and Jean-Luc Godard’s latest, Goodbye to Language 3D, will make its North American debut at the Masters Program. The Guest, starring Dan Stevens of Downton Abbey as a man who arrives on a grieving family’s doorstep claiming to be their dead son’s friend, will make its Canadian premiere in the Midnight Madness program, as part of a lineup which also boasts Kevin Smith’s upcoming horror film Tusk, starring Justin Long. Takashi Miike’s Over Your Dead Body will make its international debut in the Vanguard program.
