This summer saw one of Woody Allen‘s finest films in a storied career (one which we highlighted from the beginning) and now this fall will bring a special treat, as another work featuring the filmmaker will have its premiere at Toronto International Film Festival.

Fading Gigolo premieres at TIFF, which kicks off on September 5th.
