The ever-poised Jennifer Connelly will be back at TIFF this year (she was in town to promote What’s Wrong With Virginia in 2010). In her new film, Writers, the Requiem for a Dream and A Beautiful Mind star plays a wife and mother who decides to leave her novelist husband for a younger man, sending her family into turmoil (expect poor relationship decisions from everyone, backed by music from indie darlings Bright Eyes). Kristen Bell, Lily Collins, Greg Kinnear and Logan Lerman star alongside Connelly, and all but Bell are also slated to hit the red carpet this year.
