Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby
It’s a unique and ambitious endeavor, one that took almost a decade to get off the ground and one that began before Jessica Chastain became a star. First-time director Ned Benson had wanted to make a relationship movie from the perspectives of both a male and female – though in fact it began as one screenplay and when Chastain said it didn’t really represent her viewpoint, the filmmaker hit a eureka moment and expanded on his story. The rest is history. And also, what was originally two films (which premiered last year at TIFF) — "The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby: Him” and 'The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby: Her” — was eventually cut into a third film entitled “The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby: Them” (which screen at Cannes this past spring, though when it hits theaters, the “them” will likely get dropped from the title).

TIFF 2013 Wrap-Up
Though coming hot on the heels of Telluride and overlapping this year with Venice, the Toronto International Film Festival is anything but a third string pony. In fact it's probably the largest, glitziest and most glamorous of the fall festival season players and no-one doubts that Toronto knows how to roll out the red carpet as well as any of them. But outside the stars, closed off streets and screaming fans, the programmers also make festivities a cinephile’s dream year after year. 2013 was no different.
