    #TIFF11 Day 9

    A Canadian war hero!

    Billy Bishop Goes to War - 3.5 / 5
    I went into thinking it would be a film adaptation of the musical of the same name, but it turns out that it's a filming of a staging of the musical. I love the performances in it, and some of the shots are well done, but I couldn't help but think that seeing it live would be MUCH better. Eric Peterson is fantastic in it, and it was great to see him in person for the Q&A after the show. It was a great way to end the festival.

    Final thoughts: It was my best festival for overall film quality. I had some real hits with You're Next, Juan of the Dead and Goon, but I regret not seeing The Raid. ALSO, I swear TIFF was reading my tweets to them. From making lines when I asked, letting me into theaters when I asked, and especially adding the fan to the AMC 6 / 7 room, I SWEAR that they must have been reading those tweets.
