Based on the book Erasure by Percival Everett, this TIFF audience favourite is set to make a real splash this award season. American Fiction stars Jeffrey Wright, Tracee Ellis Ross, and John Ortiz, and marks a directorial debut for Cord Jefferson. With a compelling story that puts the literary world in centre stage, this film looks like a top pick at both the Academy Awards and the Golden Globes.
Poor Things, directed by Yorgos Lanthimos and produced by Emma Stone, is a captivating black comedy fantasy. It follows Bella Baxter, resurrected by Dr. Godwin Baxter, on an exhilarating journey with lawyer Duncan Wedderburn. The adaptation blends a unique narrative, stellar performances, and an innovative score, positioning it as a strong candidate for the Academy Award and Golden Globe 2023.
