Must Watch Hotties At The Toronto Film Fest 2011 Part 2


Simone-Élise Girard in “The Weight Of Emptiness”

What better than to showcase the wonderful Simone-Élise Girard, star of “The Weight Of Emptiness” (Le Poids Du Vide) which is having its world premiere at TIFF 2011 on 12th September. She’s already given me a heads up on how intense the short film will be and the trailer (above) suggests an enigma well worth watching. One can tell it’s a bewildering allegory of the sometimes strained relationship between a mother and her child (Boy floats through the air while his mum struggles to keep him near). Simone herself is endowed with an endearing mystique that’s bound to add gravitas to the events that will unfold in the suspenseful tale. The amiable warmth of this French-Canadian Starlet is also another one of her many gifts which is always a crowd pleaser. Fall in love with this talent with the natural instincts to enchant.

Jessica Embro in “Good Boy”

She’s been called one of the most authentic performers on film and as as a fan/friend of Jessica Embro, I wholeheartedly agree. The raven-haired beauty does invest emotionally in many of the characters she plays although she’s more subdued in “Good Boy”. It’s a story of a golden retriever who starts to lose the lovable attention of his owners, what with a bundle of joy in the family due to arrive and jealousy starts to rage within the dog! I’m inclined to affectionately call Jessica the Short Film Darling having garnered attention for her work on “Measuring Tape Girl” and now with “Good Boy”. She’s also set to be a scene stealer in the upcoming “14 Minutes” as a soon to be hitched American woman who meets with a Canadian stranger on a road trip and ends up questioning the very idea of marriage. Infatuated with her yet…well you must in a hurry!

Noureen DeWulf in “Breakaway”

“Breakaway” is a Canadian film generating strong buzz with its upbeat Bollywood inspired musical set pieces, bouncy humor amidst culture clashes and blossoming romance in the confines of Hockey, Canada’s National Sport. It’s even bewitched Hollywood with Rob Lowe and Camille Belle making their presence felt alongside cameos by luminaries such as rapper Ludacris, Drake and Indian screen heartthrob Akshay Kumar. That’s all great but of course, red-blooded males can’t wait to watch the always luscious Miss Noureen DeWulf sizzle! Will the buxom actress get to shake her money maker in one of the many enjoyable dances? Having gone visceral as a burqa covered punk in “The Taqwacores”, Noureen is proving to be quite the impactful actress. Shattering the notion of being just a sexy,pretty face, she enthralls with ease.

Rebecca Hall in “The Awakening”

While there’s still no trailer for the post-war thriller “The Awakening”, the intriguing images of Rebecca Hall looking all flustered in the role of a skeptical ghost hunter alongside co-star Dominic West would be enough to entice viewers. The busy actress is expected to dazzle TIFF 2011, promoting this haunting tale of apparitions and a woman whose a staunch unbeliever of ghost stories until an event drastically alters her perception! Lauded as a thinking man’s Sex Symbol and for portraying brainy women often with a nervous energy, one can say she has an unconventional foxiness. Comfortable as a dowdy plain Jane or a sassy Femme Fatale on screen, she does have a cultured poise that’s downright quaint and appealing. So intimately stirring in “The Town”, she did win a TV BAFTA for her shocking performance in “Red Riding”, showing us how much of a multi-faceted actress she can be.

MyAnna Buring in “Kill List”

She was in two of my all-time favorite British films namely “The Descent” and “Doomsday”. It would have been three if the campy “Lesbian Vampire Killers” was regarded as a true horror movie…hehe. I’m refering to MyAnna Buring, the Swedish-born English Rose who is swiftly racking up them gritty roles. Her latest mystery “Kill List” however could rank as another gem as it opts for psychological terror, the kind that has people talking long after they’ve experienced the movie. Of course, rabid fans will get a helping of her as the “vegetarian” vamp Tanya of the Denali Clan, cousins of the Cullen Family in Breaking Dawn, the concluding double feature of the beloved saga that is “Twilight”. This delectable blonde with the cute dimple chin is rightly making a splash in Hollywood after memorable turns in lower-budget fare which she still continues to take on.
