Elle Fanning

The Toronto International Film Festival is, as always, bringing a healthy mix of films to Canada this fall, but there are two biopics worth keeping an eye on. First up is “I, Tonya” which finds Margot Robbie playing disgraced Olympic figure skater Tonya Harding. Craig Gillespie (“Lars and The Real Girl,” “Fright Night,” “Their Finest Hours”) directs a cast that includes Sebastian Stan as Jeff Gilloly and Caitlin Carver as Nancy Kerrigan.

The greatest favor you can do Sofia Coppola‘s “The Beguiled,” and yourself before you watch it, is to put all thoughts of Don Siegel‘s 1971 Clint Eastwood-starrer of the same name from your mind. As a standalone film, Coppola’s version abounds in pleasures: from the starry cast (at least four of whom almost coincidentally seem to be hitting their career-best strides at exactly the same moment) to Philippe Le Sourd‘s cinematography, all misty woods, dangling creepers and softly sparkling candlelit interiors.

A hodgepodge of genres is splattered all over John Cameron Mitchell’s ludicrous (and ludicrously-titled) “How To Talk to Girls at Parties,” making for an incredibly brazen, outlandish, and totally bananas time at the movies. The creative collision of author Neil Gaiman and the director of “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” is a match made in bizarro world heaven as ‘Girls’ thrusts a conventional coming-of-age premise into a romance-horror-comedy-sci-fi blender with the top off, twists the knob to max-level, and blasts the angriest Sex Pistols song you’ve ever heard in your life.

Elle Fanning may only be 19 years old, but she’s becoming something of an expert on punk rock and the 1970s. The actress starred in Mike Mills‘ “20th Century Women,” which played against the backdrop of that milieu, and this weekend she’ll be in Cannes for “How To Talk To Girls At Parties,” where she’ll learn all about becoming punk. Directed by John Cameron Mitchell, based on the short story by Neil Gaiman, and co-starring Nicole Kidman, Ruth Wilson, and Alex Sharp, the film is a “punk alien love story.” Here’s the synopsis from Cannes: A story about the birth of punk, the exuberance of first love, and the universe’s greatest mystery of all: how to talk to girls at parties.
