Filming quietly in Toronto is Brian Petsos’ directorial Feature debut, BIG GOLD BRICK, which he also penned. The Dark Comedy centers on a Writer hired to write enigmatic Floyd Devereux‘s Biography, encountering sheer chaos along the way. The Film boasts an incredible Cast including Megan Fox, Oscar Isaac, Emery Cohen, ShilohFernandez and screen legend Andy Garcia.
Filming in the City’s east-end, we were ever lucky that production took place down the road from our home. We did our best to stay out of the way, but it was a thrill seeing a legend in Garcia operate and to see Cohen‘s level of energy while at work. Cohen you might remember from Oscar-nominated Brooklyn opposite Saoirse Ronan and The Place Beyond the Pines.
We know it’s early but this is the type of Movie that does the Festival rounds and we can only hope it makes it to TIFF next year when it sees a release!
Garcia was so nice to stop for a couple Selfies. He looks amazing still!

After dominating the TV landscape with ThisIs Us, Writer/Director Dan Fogelman has the big screen in his sights as he presented the World Premiere of Life Itself at TIFF. The Film is a multi-generational story revolving around two families and how they cope with tragedy, happiness and everything in-between.
Having watched This Is Us, I was prepared for melodrama, lengthy monologues and sheer moments of emotional devastation. All of these elements are accounted for over the course of Life Itself multiple times over, with some being a lot less effective than others. But what sets it apart from the popular Series is the pitch-black humour and surprisingly vulgar Script. Both are honest, unflinching and at times, shocking. The problem with all of this is that Fogelman never nails down a proper tone, which makes some scenes come off more awkward than they do genuine. The cast takes it in stride though, committing to every ludicrous plot turn Fogelman throws at them. Just be sure to bring a Kleenex box when you watch it.
Life, Itself screens on Saturday, September 9 at 6:30 PM at Roy Thomson Hall and 8:00 PM at Elgin Theatre, and Monday, September 10 at 9:30 AM at Elgin Theatre.
From the same man who brought us acclaimed TV Series THIS IS US, Dan Fogelman, comes LIFE ITSELF! See the new Trailer for the touching Film which hits theatres this fall!
