The Toronto International Film Festival welcomed a surprisingly large number of first features from actors this year: Bradley Cooper’s prestigious A Star Is Born remake, Paul Dano’s subdued WildlifeAnnihilation team-player Tuva Novotny’s formally bold Blind Spot, Max Minghella’s Teen Spirit (going behind the camera like his father Anthony) and Jonah Hill’s Mid90s all carried with them expectations and doubts. Star indie producer A24 helped Hill on his project, however, which suggested a film that would be at least a little personal, and a little different.
