Pushing the Limits

Scientifically proven to be more adorable than a basket of six-week-old Labrador puppiesThe latest issue of NOW is on the stands, inviting you to leap headfirst into the gathering TIFF madness — you’ll find our first wave of reviews, my five most-anticipated titles and much more.

But there’s non-festival stuff happening, too — like the release of “Going the Distance”, for which I spoke to Drew Barrymore, Jason Sudeikis and director Nanette Burstein a couple of weeks back. And the world premiere of the documentary “Song of the Lodz Ghetto” tonight at the Sheppard Centre as part of the Ashkenaz Festival. Oh, and the release of “The American” yesterday. So, you know, busy times for all.

Not exactly the week you’d want to come down with a cold. Still, better now than next Thursday, right?
