Plus: Ethan Hawke in 'Daybreakers,' Drew Barrymore's 'Whip It,' Viggo Mortensen in 'The Road' and more
Bonus: Life During Wartime
Director: Todd Solondz
Star power: Ally Sheedy, Paul Reubens, Ciaran Hinds, Allison Janney
Lowdown: The TIFF program describes it as an "unsettling dark comedy about sexual obsession between friends, family and lovers struggling to find love, forgiveness and meaning in a war-torn world." Read into that what you will.
Awards Potential: For the Independent Spirit Awards? Sure.
Why it's a must: There are few filmmaker who can push buttons like Solondz and it would be nice to see him make a coherent picture again after the disappointing "Palindromes." Plus, for all her eccentricities, Sheedy's always been a charismatic presence on screen.
