Photographers, reporters and publicists all agree that TIFF madness peaked with Monday’s Kidman-Portman double-header. Despite the well-known cast and director (Dustin Lance Black, who won an Oscar for 2008’s Milk), the crowds were depleted at Thursday’s premiere of What’s Wrong With Virginia, a drama about a mentally ill woman (Jennifer Connelly) and her codependent relationship with her 16-year-old son (Harrison Gilbertson). Ed Harris plays the deeply religious local sheriff with whom Connelly’s character has an affair, which becomes a problem when he decides to run for political office. Yeardley Smith, best known as the voice of Lisa Simpson, serves as an executive producer. See our red carpet photos from the premiere below.
