#TIFF18: “A MILLION LITTLE PIECES” REVIEW
Review by Amanda Gilmore for Mr. Will Wong
A Million Little Pieces is based off of the controversial Novel/Memoir by James Frey that follows his crack addiction and the his experiences and interactions with people in an AA facility. It’s the latest Film from Sam Taylor-Johnson and will have its World Premiere at TIFF ‘18 in the Special Presentations Programme.
What the Film does best is depict the struggle many people go through when having an addiction. It shows the ups and downs along with how AA might work for some but not others. The Film is also a great platform for Aaron Taylor-Johnson who puts everything he has into his performance.
A Million Little Pieces screens at TIFF on Monday, September 10 at 8:45 PM at Ryerson Theatre, and Tuesday, September 11 at 9 AM at TIFF Bell Lightbox 1.
#TIFF18: AARON & SAM TAYLOR-JOHNSON AND AMBER HEARD ARRIVE FOR 2018 TORONTO INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL
We’re a bit slower to start this year, but thrilled still to spot some marquee names at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival, making their way in! Power Couple Aaron (Nocturnal Animals) and Sam Taylor-Johnson (Fifty Shades of Grey) are at the Festival for the latter’s adaptation of James Frey‘s bestseller, A MILLION LITTLE PIECES. The former also is here for Opening Night Gala, THE OUTLAW KING. While they were held back for quite some time, they were all smiles, relieved to make they way out. Love everything about this couple!
We love Amber Heard (The Danish Girl) and it was a lovely surprise seeing her arrive incognito in sunglasses, which she later took off once spotted! She is here for HER SMELL, starring alongside Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid’s Tale) who plays a self-destructive Rocker! Heard also will speak at an event for L’Oréal on Friday, celebrating the power of women!
Bonus sighting! Fans of Marvel’s Jessica Jones will recognize right away Erin Moriarty, in-town filming Series, THE BOYS.
We don’t know about you, but we’re so ready for our favourite time of the year! We’ve been out doing the rounds and doing lots of Press ourselves. In case you missed it, here’s our segment on CP24 on LIVE AT NOON!
Up next are an appearance on Breakfast Television Friday morning right before 7 AM! Tune-in or PVR it!
We caught wind of Chris Pine flying-in today for The Outlaw King also, while earlier in the day The Predator stars Trevante Rhodes, Olivia Munn and Boyd Holbrook all were spotted around the City.
Hoping we pick-up the pace a bit more tomorrow for Day One of TIFF ’18!
