TIFF Talk 2015: Fanen, "Len and Company"

Name: Fanen, Toronto

The Film: Len and Company (USA)

What's it about?

A legendary, reclusive music producer (Rhys Ifans) has his shut-in routine disturbed by the unexpected arrival of his aspiring musician son (Jack Kilmer) and a troubled bubblegum-pop superstar (Juno Temple) - written by Jane Schoettle, TIFF programmer

Did you like it?

It's a very funny movie by a first time director from Montreal, Tim Godsall. He had such a command for the tone. It's a very tricky tone to get. It's sort of observing the difference between Britain and North America. The performances were amazing as well. Intelligent audiences will love it. I highly recommend it. There's so much talent in the Canadian film industry and I see it getting better -- whether it's from the performing or filmmaking side.

Next screening:

Friday, September 18th at 4:30pm, Elgin Wintergreen Theatre
