Toronto recap: Oscar talk begins for real


The Toronto International Film Festival showcases many performances that could make waves come Oscar-nomination time. USA TODAY’s Donna Freydkin and Andrea Mandell assess the festival’s early buzz.
Benedict Cumberbatch
The films: The Fifth Estate (Oct. 18); 12 Years a Slave (limited release Oct. 18); andAugust: Osage County (limited release Dec. 25)
Back story: So far, Julian Assange has yet to react to the finished Fifth Estate, which depicts his life and the launch of WikiLeaks, although at one point, he contacted Cumberbatch via e-mail “imploring me not to do the film,” the actor says.
Cumberbatch says he replied at length, assuring Assange he wasn’t out to demonize him. The WikiLeaks founder thanked him, but the two never met. Now, as the film gears up for its opening, “the criticism that hurts the most is that we are on one side or the other.” — Mandell
