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.

    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.
