With Toronto’s stellar line-up revealed for their 2012 festival, it’s time for some first looks at a few of our most-anticipated titles. Near the top is the next film from Ramin Bahrani, the director behind Chop Shop, Man Push Cart and Goodbye Solo. Bringing together his most high-profile cast yet, At Any Price stars Dennis Quaid, Heather Graham, and Zac Efron. The drama follows “a rebellious son whose dreams of becoming a professional race-car driver are derailed when his father’s farming empire becomes the target of a high-stakes investigation.”
