[First Look] ‘Jackie Brown’ Prequel ‘Life of Crime,’ ‘Can a Song Save Your Life’ With Keira Knightley & More

Written by on July 23, 2013 

While prequels, reboots, sequels and films of that ilk usually aren’t present at Toronto Film Festival, one particular prequel has our attention. Based on Elmore Leonard‘s novel The Switch (a prequel to Jackie Brown, adapted by Quentin Tarantino), Daniel Schechter‘s Life of Crime will close out the festival. Today brings our first look at the film, which follows Louis (John Hawkes) and Ordell (Mos Def) — two common criminals in 1970s Detroit — who kidnap the housewife (Jennifer Aniston) of a corrupt real estate developer (Tim Robbins) and hold her for ransom. Also starring Isla Fisher, Will Forte and Mark Boone Jr., check out the image above.

Next up we’ve got the first image from Can a Song Save Your Life?, coming from Once director John Carney. The story follows Gretta (Keira Knightley) alone in New York City after being heartbroken by her musician boyfriend (Adam Levine). She finds laughter and rejuvenation with a down-on-his-luck record producer (Mark Ruffalo) who recognizes her musical talent and opens up an entire city of possibility for both of them.

Lastly, the first still from Ralph Fiennes‘ directorial follow-up to Coriolanus, The Invisible Woman, has arrived, which follows Fiennes as the legendary Charles Dickens. Co-starring with Felicity Jones, she plays a happily-married mother and schoolteacher who is haunted by her past. Her memories, provoked by remorse and guilt, go back in time to follow the story of her relationship with Charles Dickens (Ralph Fiennes), with whom she discovered an exciting but fragile complicity. Dickens — famous, controlling and emotionally isolated within his success — falls for Nelly, who comes from a family of actors. Also starring Kristin Scott Thomas, Tom Hollander, Joanna Scanlan, Perdita Weeks, Amanda Hale, Tom Burke, John Kavanagh and Michael Marcus, check out the images below.

TIFF 2013 kicks off on September 5th.
