Films from the Coen brothers, Barrymore, Moore bound for Toronto film fest

TORONTO - A comedy from the Coen brothers, the directorial debut of Drew Barrymore, and a new treatise from documentarian Michael Moore are among a slate of movies added to the Toronto International Film Festival.

Organizers say they’ve booked Joel and Ethan Coen’s black comedy, “A Serious Man.”

The ’60s-era tale comes a year after the brothers unspooled their comedy “Burn After Reading” at the festival last year, and the Oscar-winning “No Country For Old Men” in 2007.

Programmers will also screen Barrymore’s rowdy comedy “Whip It,” starring Halifax’s Ellen Page as a rebellious Texas teen that dives into the world of roller-derby.

Moore’s corporate critique, “Capitalism: A Love Story,” will play on the 20th anniversary of his breakout film, “Roger & Me.”

That’s in addition to two more galas set for September, both inspired by novels: Oscar Wilde’s “Dorian Gray,” directed by Oliver Parker and starring Colin Firth, and Rebecca Miller’s “The Private Lives of Pippa Lee,” directed by Miller and starring Robin Wright Penn, Alan Arkin and Keanu Reeves.

Other films include Werner Herzog’s drama “Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans,” starring Nicolas Cage as a drug-addicted homicide detective, and the Irish gangster comedy “Perrier’s Bounty,” starring Cillian Murphy as a man on the run from a Dublin kingpin.

The film festival runs Sept. 10 to 19.
