No stranger to the festival circuit, beloved French filmmaker Francois Ozon ("Swimming Pool," "8 Women") returns to Toronto with "In The House."

Starring Kristin Scott Thomas, the film finds Ozon returning to the thriller genre after his previous effort, the light-hearted, frothy and forgettable "Potiche." Here's the official synopsis: A sixteen-year-old boy insinuates himself into the house of a fellow student from his literature class and writes about it in essays for his French teacher. Faced with this gifted and unusual pupil, the teacher rediscovers his enthusiasm for his work, but the boy’s intrusion will unleash a series of uncontrollable events.  

The film will make its World Premiere at TIFF. Enterainment One will distribute the picture in Canada, with Cohen Media snagging the rights for the U.S.

    Huppert is the actress with the most exciting career right now : Haneke, Mendoza, Sang-Soo, Bellocchio, plus she's also doing more mainstream work on the side (Dead Man Down, Suspiria remake)

    Pas juste maintenant (not just right now). She's one of the greatest french actresses.

    So excited for Foxfire -- the actresses look unbelievable! We all know what Cantet pulled off with the young cast in Entre Les Murs, and this looks so much better! Apparently, he auditioned thousands of girls before he put this ensemble together -- future Canadian stars, I'm sure and such a good mix!

    I am a Canadian and looking forward to Foxfire. Does anyone know the names of the actresses? In particular the red head with the pigtails?

    Can't wait for Foxfire. Loved Cantet's previous work and am excited to see what he will do this.
