TIFF ’10: Day One brings Bardem’s ‘Biutiful,’ Ben’s ‘The Town’ and ‘Never Let Me Go’

By Sean O’Connell

Hollywoodnews.com: And so it begins.

I’m heading out the door, diving into the 35th Toronto International Film Festival. I’m looking at four- and five-film days initially, so reports will be short and infrequent. Unless there’s wireless internet access at the Scotiabank. (Oh please, TIFF gods, let there be wireless access somewhere near the Scotiabank!)

I’ve got a few heavyweights on the docket for today. Javier Bardem in “Biutiful” and Hilary Swank in “Conviction.” I think I’m going to try Ben Affleck’s “The Town,” after the extremely positive notices it has been getting out of Venice. “Gone Baby Gone” gets better every time I watch it, and some have said this is a stronger directorial effort from Mr. Affleck. That certainly sounds intriguing. Also, I’m hustling to get into a screening of “Never Let Me Go,” though a venue switch has placed a little strain on my already tight schedule.

If that’s my biggest problem today, though, I’m doing OK.

So, TIFF 2010. Let’s get it on. And stay with me HollywoodNews.com readers. I’ll weigh in on everything that I see … eventually!
