In case you haven’t been paying attention and you’ve been enjoying the final days of summer, TIFF is coming. Yup, our annual Toronto International Film Festival kicks off on September 8 and brings with it a flurry of celebrity sightings, parties and more caffeine and cocktails than will be consumed for probably the rest of the year. But, if you can’t make it to any of the premieres or just can’t handle the crowds (we get it) or just want to form your opinions prior to your movie screenings, read the books that inspired the movies first.
The Snowden Files by Luke Harding
Based on true events, Edward Snowden was the former NSA agent that leaked very, very confidential information. Does that make him a traitor or a patriot? We’re not really sure. The movie, titled Snowden, has a packed cast, including Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Shailene Woodley, Zachary Quinto and Scott Eastwood.
