Meet Mickey Rourke, Oscar contender.

Sure, Brad Pitt was here, but the buzz today in Toronto was all about Mickey Rourke.

Or at least Rourke's new film 'The Wrestler,' which became THE must-see flick of the fest with news that a) It is the festival's first major acquisition (Fox Searchlight snatched it up for $4 million, b) It was awarded the Golden Lion award for Best Picture at the just-wrapped Venice Film Festival and c) Mickey Rourke has Oscar buzz!

Does it live up to the hype? Hell yeah.
