#TIFF18: “HOTEL MUMBAI” REVIEW
Review by Amanda Gilmore for Mr. Will Wong
Hotel Mumbai depicts the terrorist attack that happened at the Taj Hotel in Mumbai in 2008, and the victims and survivors of that attack. This is the feature directorial debut for Anthony Maras and it will have its World Premiere at TIFF ’18.
The Film has an impressive ensemble cast consisting of Dev Patel, Armie Hammer and Nazanin Boniadi to name a few. Then there is the skillful Director from Maras who brings an equal amount of love and hate to the Film. There are tender scenes are love and devotion between family, friends, co-workers and even strangers. Then there are the violent and often hard-to-watch moments of terror.
Hotel Mumbai screens on Friday, September 7 at 6 PM at Princess Of Wales, Sunday, September 9 at 9:45 PM and 10 PM at Scotiabank, and Saturday, September 15 at 9:30 PM at Winter Garden Theatre.
