They may be from Toronto, but that doesn’t make us any less excited to know that hometown stars Rachel McAdams and Sarah Gadon will be attending TIFF this year. McAdams plays the childhood friend-cum-love interest of Ben Affleck’s character in Terrence Malick’s new film To The Wonder, as well as a lusty, psychotic executive in Passion (Brian De Palma’s remake of Alain Corneau’s Crime d’amour), while noted beauty Gadon takes on the role of a beloved starlet in Brandon Cronenberg’s Antiviral (Gadon’s character is disease-inflicted, and her virus is harvested, sold and then injected into fans in a “biological communion” of sorts—it is a Cronenberg flick, after all).
