My pics of “All the Wrong Reasons” World Premiere Q&A at 2013 Toronto International Film Festival

On Sunday, September 8, 2013 I attended the highly anticipated gala World Premiere of All the Wrong Reasons at the Toronto International Film Festival. The sold-out event was held at the Scotiabank Theatre. The film was a selection in the Discovery section.

Cory Monteith stars as James Ascher, a hard-working department store manager who's perhaps a bit too earnest for his own good. Wife Kate (Karine Vanasse) works in store security, confined to a back room by herself lest she come into physical contact with any of her co-workers. Intrigue surrounds her enigmatic phobias. Then there's Nicole (Emily Hampshire), a frazzled cashier struggling to raise a child on her own. Denis Theriault provides much of the movie's comic relief as chipper Radley Weil, who hopes to step into Ascher's shoes someday. Then there's ubiquitous film festival icon Kevin Zegers as an injured fireman trying to make his way back onto the force.  

For more see my full-length review.

Writer/director/producer Gia Milani was brought onstage after the screening by TIFF Senior Programmer Steve Gravestock. They were joined by stars Karine Vanasse, Emily Hampshire, and Denis Theriault for an informative and entertaining Q&A session.

Here are some pictures I shot during the Q&A:
