Keira Knightley in Toronto - September 2011
The Premiere for David Cronenberg's latest work A Dangerous Method was held last night at Roy Thomson Hall, but earlier in the day the Press Conference for the Psychological Drama was held. Unfortunately though, one of its biggest stars Michael Fassbender was missing-in-action although hopefully that will change soon.  Regardless, the Film continues to garner an alarming amount of praise and I'd say at this point it's a front-runner in the race for Best Picture at the Oscars.

Keira Knightley plays Sabina, who is caught in a torrid affair with her Psychologist Carl Jung (Fassbender), and she is getting a lot of buzz for the her intense performance in the Film. When I saw Knightley leaving her Press Conference yesterday unfortunately she had been in a rush and had to tell her Fans she wouldn't be able to stop, as was the case with a normally Fan-loving Viggo Mortensen who plays Sigmund Freud in A Dangerous Method

Director David Cronenberg - the Pride of Toronto  - however, was more than accommodating being a bit more generous with Fans, as was fellow Torontonian Sarah Gadon, who also will be appearing in his next Film Cosmopolis alongside Robert Pattinson.  Jokingly, Gadon told Fans "I wish you'd find another Photo of me", commenting on having to sign this same Photo she often gets asked to sign.

  1. Michael Fassbender was in Venice as he won the Best Actor award at the Venice Film Festival for Shame. Hopefully, he will be in Toronto for Shame Premium Screening tonight.
