If you've been a steady reader of this blog for at least four days, then you know I have a strong affection for the complete works of Ms. Jennifer Connelly. And by complete works, I mean her talent, her face, her body of work AND her body, thank you very much. (Plus she's still so beautiful...) Anyway, as I was perusing through the Toronto Film Festival titles and jotting down which flicks I wanted to see ... there it was: Jen's name! She's got a movie called Reservation Road at Toronto ... and it looks pretty good!

From writer/director Terry George (In the Name of the Father, Hotel Rwanda) comes the story of ... well, I'm trying to remain relatively 'spoiler-free' for this movie, but the IMDb tells us it's "a drama that revolves around two fathers whose families and lives tragically converge with the death of a child." Sounds like your typically uplifting festival fare, but with Mr. George's track record -- and a cast that includes Joaquin Phoenix, Mark Ruffalo, Mira Sorvino and the aforementioned mega-goddess -- it sounds like a title I'll definitely be taking in next month. Plus the film was co-written by the author of the novel, which in my opinion is always a positive sign.

Focus Features will release Reservation Road on October 19, but if you're as intrigued as I am, you can check out the new trailer over at IGN Movies. I however will NOT be watching the trailer, so please let me know what you think of it. (Without spoiling anything.)
