I just came from The Flying Machine gala at the Toronto International Film Festival. As chance would have it, I sat right next to Heather Graham herself and her boyfriend. I’ll tell you all about it when I wake up — I’m exhausted after a long TIFF-filled weekend! Suffice it to say, though, I was happy I could tell Heather in person, right when the last credit rolled, that it was a really special film.

To see my full review of the film, go to Celebrity Candy. Better yet, go see it in the theatre! If you’re in Toronto, you can catch it at the TIFF Lightbox, Sunday, September 18.

More to come on the main page later this week. The Monkey got a chance to hold the actual doll from the movie (in red, above), and run her hands dreamily along the magnificent flying machine…. Lucky girl!

So go and take your kids: marvel in the groundbreaking 3D stop-motion animation, learn a ton about Chopin, get lost in the art…. I am a huge fan of this truly special film — so much so that I had a hard time holding back tears at the end. I get emotional when I witness something so intelligent, complex and creative for children. More deets, pics, magical moments to come asap!

Call 416.599.TIFF | 1.888.599.8433 for tix!
