Nothing short of the most comprehensive and significant movie showcase in North America, the 40th Toronto International Film Festival will present 289 features over its run from September 10–20—including 132 buzzy world premieres, an impressively high number. As these films screen (we’ll be there!), expect the Oscar season to take shape with titles like The Danish Girl, actor Eddie Redmayne’s follow-up to The Theory of Everything; Michael Moore’s sure-to-be-provocative documentary Where to Invade Next; and a host of hotly anticipated contenders. We’ve scoured the Toronto Film Festival lineup and have our 20 favorites: the ones that will make us line up early for the good seats.
