Now's the time where it really kicks in that award season is quickly approaching. The 2016 Toronto International Film Festival has officially kicked off bringing tons of films from all of our favourite A-listers.
PepMag, an inspiring and exciting new magazine created by my girl Ann Pirvu launching next week, will feature an article written by yours truly featuring five TIFF films that I think are worth watching. Here are my top three (you'll have to check out the magazine on the 16th for the other two):
1) Hidden Figures - “NASA mathematicians Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan and Mary Jackson cross gender and race lines to help launch astronaut John Glenn into outer space.” (IMDb)
2) In Dubious Battle - “California migratory workers rise against the landowners in a wage dispute.” (IMDb)
3) Bleed For This - “With help from trainer Kevin Rooney, champion boxer Vinny Pazienza tries to make a comeback after severing his spine in a car accident.” (IMDb)
