Best and Worst of the 2013 Toronto Film Festival: 'Gravity,' '12 Years A Slave,' 'Devil's Knot'
It was a good slate of films north of the border this year
Best: Bad Words
Hollywood learned something about Jason Bateman at this year's festival. The "Arrested Development" and "Horrible Bosses" star has a long career ahead of him as…a director. Bateman's filmmaking debut, "Bad Words," is a wonderfully timed cutthroat comedy about a man (Bateman) who decides to use a legal loophole to enter a national spelling bee intended just for kids. When he gets all the way to the finals it delivers a not-so surprising ending in a very surprising way. And, it will likely be the biggest box office hit out of all of this year's acquisitions at the fest.
