TIFF Canada’s Top Ten // Allure


TIFF Canada’s Top Ten film festival kicks off 2018 with a selection of must see films made right here in the great white north.

The feature film debut of celebrated photographer siblings Carlos Sanchez and Jason Sanchez, Allure is a dark, dramatic look at behaviour, relationships and abuse. Evan Rachel Wood stars as Laura, a role initially intended for a man, while Julia Sarah Stone co-stars as Eva, Laura’s 16-year old lover who runs away from home so the two can be together. The creative foursome talked to @brigittetruong during #TIFF17 about the allure of the project.

Canada’s Top Ten runs from Jan 12-21 and features the following films:

Adventures in Public School
Les Affamés
Never Steady, Never Still
Our People Will Be Healed
RUMBLE: The Indians Who Rocked the World
The Little Girl Who Was Too Fond of Matches
Unarmed Verses

Allure screens on Thursday January 18 and Sunday January 21, for tickets and more information visit tiff.net. The festival will also feature an In Conversation With…Evan Rachel Wood on Jan 20.
