TORONTO REPORT: RETURN TO ITHACA


Laurent Cantet's career has undergone a surprising dip since he won the Palme d'Or at Cannes with The Class, and it's a dip that looks set to continue with Return to Ithaca. Overall, critics at TIFF 2014 have been only mildly impressed, though reactions do differ significantly from writer to writer.
