CONFIRMED: Kate Hudson will walk the red carpet at TIFF 2012

A promising, Oscar-nominated start to Kate Hudson’s career gave way to a series of rom-com cash cows, each more forgettable than the last—Rolling Stone’s Peter Travers called her most recent release, A Little Bit of Heaven, a “droolingly stupid weepie.” Hudson will be at TIFF to screen The Reluctant Fundamentalist, a film about a young Pakistani man torn between the American Dream and his homeland in post-9/11 America, which, thankfully, sounds neither like a weepie nor droolingly stupid. But we make no promises.
