Films screened at TIFF shot at Pinewood Toronto Studios

14 September 2011

The Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) once again took the city by storm, screening all the hottest new has taken Toronto by storm, screening all the hottest new movies of the year. Included in this year’s line-up were two Canadian films shot at Pinewood Toronto Studios. 

388 ARLETTA is the unsettling Hitchcockian thriller written and directed by Randall Cole. The story focuses on James Deakins (Nick Stahl) and his wife Amy (Mia Kirshner) who lead a very comfortable life in an upscale Toronto neighbourhood. What neither James nor Amy knows is that they’re being watched 24 hours a day. Whoever is watching them knows just how to manipulate them. Odd things start happening: A radio alarm goes off too early, a mixed CD appears in their locked car with music neither one likes. Individually, each mishap is manageable, but together, they create mistrust that turns to tension, then tension turns to anger and then, Amy disappears.

Production took place in a house in Toronto shortly before Christmas 2010.

TAKE THIS WALTZ is Sarah Polley’s second feature, following the twice Oscar®-nominated Away From Her.

Production took place at Pinewood Toronto Studios and around the city of Toronto and also in Louisburg, Nova
