15 TIFF Movies That Will Make Headlines

by at .  Updated at . Comments

The Toronto Film Festival has started and it, now more than ever, is the place where you will see tomorrow's hits and Oscar contenders today. 

We've looked over the schedule of all those films being featured -- and some who are even premiering at the Canadian film festival -- and found 15 that we think will be exiting TIFF with all kinds of buzz. 

Click through and don't miss our 15 films to watch for coming out of TIFF.

1. Wild

Wild
After Wild's premiere at the Telluride Film Festival, everyone who saw this film said that Reese Witherspoon was a lock for the Oscar. Wild is the true story of a woman who leaves everything behind and goes on a 1,100 mile walk along the Pacific Crest Trail to heal herself after several tragedies and years of self destructive behavior. Wild sounds inspirational and powerful to say the least.

2. St. Vincent

St. Vincent
St. Vincent stars Bill Murray as a wild Vietnam vet who is asked by his neighbor (Melissa McCarthy) to watch over her son while she has to work. The two form the most amazing bond in this drama-comedy that has Murray Oscar buzz written all over it.

3. The Judge

The Judge
The Robert Downey Jr. and Robert Duvall starring father-son drama/legal thriller premieres at TIFF and with those two actors in the lead, expect some serious dramatic fireworks.

4. Love & Mercy

Love & Mercy
Love & Mercy tells the story of an icon, Beach Boys founder Brian Wilson. It explores his younger days putting together Pet Sounds (where he's played by Paul Dano) and his '80s comeback (where he's played by John Cusack).

5. Men, Women & Children

Men, Women & Children
Men, Women & Children is the latest from Juno and Up in the Air filmmaker Jason Reitman. With a cast that is led by The Fault in Our Stars' Ansel Elgort and Jennifer Garner with it covering something as topical as how the internet has revolutionized communication, prepare to hear a lot about this one.

6. Maps to the Stars

Maps to the Stars
David Cronenberg putting his camera on the world that is living in Hollywood and all that that means? Could be astounding, and with Julianne Moore getting serious buzz for her leading performance, this TIFF premiere is a can't miss.
