One that it's this category and just around the Toronto film festival is prisoners.
And -- -- drama starring Hugh Jackman.
As a father taking matters into his own hands.
After his daughter and her friend are kidnapped Jake Gyllenhaal plays a police officer on the case.
The supporting cast includes IL -- Davis Terrence Howard Maria -- and Melissa Leo.
So Justin tell us more about this one and would you can.
As it stands right now we are still early it's still September.
This is my favorite movie of the year so far out this blew -- way it's a huge statement and I think this is a master class in acting and suspense building.
Great script and great performances by Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal and -- you know I mean we didn't mention him right in the intro but he.
It -- in this film what do chilling performance and this guy he is such a chameleon Paul Allen's you know all over the place in these different indie films are different.
Every single time.
-- what I think is so great about this this film and stories like this.
Is that you have these morally ambiguous characters these terrible situations happen they're Terrence Howard and he Jackson's children.
Go missing on Thanksgiving.
And during the small suburban town in Pennsylvania and -- on this you know.
Search for them and the police got involved -- -- -- -- cop trying to find it but you know.
He has his own personal problems and he's trying to do the right thing to find him but it's.
Department is kind of you know not with it and they're screwing up and he has to face the consequences of that.
And because of that huge -- and take matters into his own hands and when you have a story like this where the character -- it matters in their own hands.
It blurs the lines of justice and and how things should be done and you really want Jackman to solve his problem he's going -- really really.
That it's just.
Complex in such an intricate plot.
Great great -- and photography by the wonderful -- you can.
-- -- -- story with some of the best acting.
Okay do you see it sort of being mentioned in several category audio sounds probably see Hugh Jackman nominees for best actor.
We will probably see Roger deacons -- -- I think -- screenplay.
Low latency and then we -- of another movie that's heading to theaters it's on the other side of things romantic comedy.
Called an upset and it feature as James Gandolfini.
In one of his final roles at different kind of -- audiences haven't really seen him and it's a lead in a romantic comedy.
It co stars Julia Louie Dreyfuss and it's you -- divorce case.
Who start to date but it's much more complicated and that suggests an -- take it from here.
This is a really good film and and that's it really.
Nice film for James Campbell -- and his career.
And he would Julia Louis-Dreyfus are a wonderful -- I mean they just.
So naturally and so delicately.
Just -- emotion into these two roles that.
Just shouldn't fit together but they do Julia Louie Dreyfuss is a massage therapist and she needs Catherine -- at a party.
And becomes good friends with her becomes her massage therapist but also the same party -- James Gandolfini who she's not quite attracted to but he's.
Flirts with her and they start this that friendship.
And it turns out.
That James Gandolfini and Catherine Keener.
Are you know.
Our ex husband and -- and and she -- stuck in the middle because she doesn't want to tell either one that she's she knows the other person and each side is.
Using her to complain about the other she stuck in the middle and it's very funny Xperia U and it's great story and you know I really hope that Julie Louis-Dreyfus.
Gets more leading roles like this if she does so well she sold natural she's not Michael Lane Bryant -- how she is on -- This is a different side of Julie Louis-Dreyfus that we don't usually see she's very.
You know tender and calm and she does this you know realistic motion so well that we don't usually -- Yeah I like to see her and more movie especially like that's.
And and I -- that we don't we haven't seen that James Gandolfini do overall like -- right.
He's usually very rough hard in person in his films I mean maybe that.
The Mexican could try -- BS -- some and it's nothing like the Mexican but.
He was he had a little bit of a softer side that -- that character and yet.
I think -- off so well and can't really gonna miss him because there was so much potential -- can you know there's so much that that are left to be discovered engines.
And -- such a great actor.
