127 Hours and Rabbit Hole tomorrow at TIFF

Back to TIFF blogging tomorrow. I'll be at two movies: the new Danny Boyle film (he of Slumdog Millionaire et al.) with James Franco, 127 Hours . This is the one that's made showings at other film festivals call for the medics: "127 Hours is the true story of mountain climber Aron Ralston’s (James Franco) remarkable adventure to save himself after a fallen boulder crashes on his arm and traps him in an isolated canyon in Utah. Over the next five days Ralston examines his life and survives the elements to finally discover he has the courage and the wherewithal to extricate himself by any means necessary."

But what I'm really looking forward to is the world premiere of the new John Cameron Mitchell-directed movie, Rabbit Hole, starring Nicole Kidman and Aaron Eckhart: "A family navigates the deepest form of loss in John Cameron Mitchell's screen adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize winning play by David Lindsay-Abaire. Nicole Kidman and Aaron Eckhart deliver captivating performances as a husband and wife who fight to save their marriage in the life that begins again after tragedy." Kidman produced and hand picked Mitchell, who should be in town for the premiere (Mitchell brought us two of my favourite films, Hedwig and the Angry Inch and Shortbus). Look for my Loved / Liked / Lacked reviews of 127 hours on Monday and my Rabbit Hole report with pixs from the premiere on Tuesday.
