TIFF 2016 Spotlight: Sizzling Cutie Emma Hunter


Canadian actress Emma Hunter is certainly part of the new wave of comediennes with the knack for delighting audiences. She stars in “3-Way (Not Calling)” which has been billed as one of the top 25 shorts at this year’s TIFF. Emma plays Mel who on her birthday coaxes her boyfriend into having a threesome. But things don’t go as planned as the pair try to spice things up in the bedroom with the introduction of a cute barista in their sexual experimentation. Emma has already earned praises for being the comedic lynchpin from reviewers as she balances the stoic and endearing facets of Mel. As a fast rising comedienne, Emma has a vivacity reminiscent of “Doctor Who” starlet Jenna Coleman. In “3-Way (Not Calling)”, she’s authentically likeable in spite of the awkwardness her character Mel and her boyfriend have knowingly plunged into.

As a stand-up comedienne, she’s first-rate having done skits on celebrities such as Kate Middleton, Paula Deen, Victoria Beckham, Carly Rae Jepsen, Sofía Vergara, Kristin Stewart and many more. Her mastery of accents is bewildering and affirms her chameleon-like flair for humorous-filled celebrity impressions. She also helms the satirical news web series “The Beaverton” which has been called sharp and addictive. With Comedy Network announcing the debut of “The Beaverton” in November 2016, Emma may well be one of the premier comics to grace the world.

TIFF 2016 Spotlight: Rising Starlet Clémentine Pons


To be able to appreciate the wonders of French actresses in our lifetime is a wonderful thing and Clémentine Pons is a face we can’t wait to be passionate about. She stars in the comedy “Cosmos”, a tale of eroticism intertwined with thought-provoking themes of the notion of perfection. It’s certainly brave on Clémentine’s part to take on the role of Catherette, the maid with a scar on her lips. Her facial flaw however seems to intrigue the 2 young men living with her, Witold (Jonathan Genet) and Fuchs (Johan Libéreau). That’s on top of desiring Lena (Victória Guerra), another man’s wife and it sounds like a recipe for trouble. Clémentine’s dual role also sees her playing Ginette is the double of Catherette but without the glaring deformity on her lips. Recycling the duality once projected by Isabelle Adjani in “Possession” and with director Andrzej Zulawski’s intricate use of multi-level storylines, “Cosmos” will obfuscate and leave us spellbound. Thanks to Andrzej, scars are now a certified sensual figment of our imagination. Clémentine will mesmerise in the bizarre duplexity of her personas and we salute her spiritedness in elevating the outlandishness of her character’s situations. She and her cast mates make viewing French-language stories a real pleasure, irrespective of whether we understand the finery of the French vocabulary.


The French invasion on film is here to stay and Clémentine does have the innate appeal to launch herself as a global star. Léa Seydoux got her big break in a film with an erotic undercurrent, i.e. “Blue Is the Warmest Color” and it’s conceivable that Clémentine could one day reach the heights attained by the amazing Marion Cotillard. It takes gumption to play 2 roles in the same movie, one with an obtrusive deformity no less and it’s this professionalism from the gregarious Miss Clémentine Pons that will take her to great success.
