Pretty, Sweet

caramel2_200-5c7c5ee09258eacbd9d92283d822022d2158e648-s6-c30Unless a thunderstorm ruins everything, I’ll be presenting a free screening of Nadine Labaki’s Caramel down at the WestJet stage at Harbourfront tonight.

It is the outlier in this year’s “funny girls” program, not being much of a comedy. It’s got a pleasant enough vibe, but Labaki’s not really interested in belly laughs; she’s just not making that sort of movie.

Still, it’s a nice little picture, and if you want to watch a movie about people coming together in a beauty salon on a sultry Toronto night, I can’t think of a better place to do it than the waterfront. Come down, why not? I did say it was free, didn’t I?

Oh, also I wrote a thing about yesterday’s TIFF launch that’s up on the NOW site; I also did a hit about the festival for CTV News Channel. I was heavily powdered. It was for the best, really.
