A few days have passed since the Toronto International Film
Festival ended, giving us a chance to reflect on the highlights of our trip there that were
not necessarily film related.
Starting with the hotel we stayed at. Built in 1929, the Fairmont Royal York Hotel boasts 1365 rooms and the largest
hotel kitchen in Canada.
You might recognize it as the setting for a big scene in the film
"Red" (not the conclusion to Kieslowski's "Three Color" trilogy but the one in
which Helen Mirren shoots a machine gun).
