Though we got it once before as a 1992 Annette Haywood-Carter film starring a young Angelina Jolie and (eventual) Rilo Kiley frontwoman Jenny Lewis, there's certainly room for improvement. And when you have "The Class" director Laurent Cantent deciding to take on the classic Joyce Carol Oates novel "Foxfire: Confessions Of A Girl Gang," and bring it to the big screen, our interest is piqued.

Roman Polanski: Odd Man Out

Already the subject of one festival bound documentary this year -- "Roman Polanski: A Film Memoir" which unspooled at Cannes -- the world's most (in)famous helmer is a subject of another doc, from a filmmaker who is more than familiar with the territory.

"Roman Polanski: Wanted And Desired" helmer Marina Zenovich returns with "Roman Polanski: Odd Man Out" a follow-up look to her original film that explores the fallout that happened after it was released. Here's the official synopsis: In 2009, celebrated director Roman Polanski was arrested at the Zurich Film Festival. His weekend jaunt turned into a 10-month imprisonment. Zenovich’s follow up to Wanted and Desired — which some say was one of the reasons for Polanski’s arrest — explores the bizarre clash of politics, celebrity justice and the media.

The film is making its World Premiere at TIFF and is seeking stateside distribution.
