Toronto adds world premieres including Disgrace, Miracle Of St Anna

The Toronto International Film Festival has added six films to its Special Presentations line-up for 2008.

The films include four world premieres: Steve Jacobs’ Disgrace, Vicente Amorim’s Good, Spike Lee’s Miracle At St Anna, and Peter Sollett’s Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist.

North American premieres are Paolo Sorrentino’s Cannes jury prize-winner Il Divo and Kathryn Bigelow’s The Hurt Locker.

Disgrace (Australia/South Africa) is an adaptation of the Booker-winning JM Coetzee novel about a Cape Town professor (John Malkovich) who visits his daughter on her rural farm in the Eastern Cape and becomes the victim of violence.

Good (UK/Hungary) stars Viggo Mortensen as a 1930s professor whose novel is suddenly lauded by political figures.

Miracle At St Anna, which had been tipped to show in Venice, is Spike Lee’s Italy-set story of four black American soldiers in Tuscany during WWII. The cast features Starring Derek Luke, Michael Ealy, Laz Alonso, Omar Benson Miller, Matteo Sciabordi, John Leguizamo and Joseph Gordon Levitt.

Comedy Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist is about two people, played by Michael Cera and Kat Dennings, who are brought together one night by a love of the same music.

Cannes hit Il Divo stars Toni Servillo as controversial Italian politician Giulio Andreotti.

The Hurt Locker stars Ralph Fiennes, Guy Pearce, David Morse, Jeremy Renner and Christian Camargo as members of an elite Army bomb squad unit in Iraq.

The festival runs Sept 4-13.
