Most anticipated movies of the 2012 fall film festival season
'Cloud Atlas,' 'Seven Psychopaths,' 'The Master' and more
Director: Joe Wright
Starring: Keira Knightley, Aaron Johnson, Jude Law, Kelly Macdonald, Olivia Williams
Screening at: Toronto
Why: Knightley and Wright reunite for the third time after the critically acclaimed collaborations "Pride and Prejudice" and best picture nominee "Atonement." Wright has quickly demonstrated he's one of the most visionary filmmakers of his generation. What the "Hanna" helmer can accomplish by revisiting Leo Tolstoy's classic novel could result in a bounty of Oscar nominations this January. And if he can make audiences cry? Well, he might not be dealing with just a nomination.
