Toronto International FIlm Festival 2013: All of Susan Wloszczyna's updates

Susan Wloszczyna is at the 2013 edition of the Toronto International Film Festival. Before it started, she told us about her hopes and expectations for the festival. She has reported on the first day of screenings (lesbian romance and Cannes sensation "Blue is the Warmest Color," Jim Jarmusch's "Only Lovers Left Alive") and on the opening night tribute to Roger that preceded the screening of "The Fifth Estate."

She caught us up on day two, when she saw AIDS activism drama "Dallas Buyers Club" (with a shockingly transformed Matthew McConaughey) and "Labor Day," a romantic drama starring Kate Winslet.

She has given us a glimpse of the party-driven Saturday night of day three.

She's told us about her experiences Sunday, which include her lack of interest in the testosterone of "Rush," her appreciation of Sandra Bullock in "Gravity" and the consistently amazing screen power of Dame Judi Dench in "Philomena."

And she's reported on the epic pairing of Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts as mother and daughter in "August: Osage County," which is likely to have at least two and maybe more acting nominations come Oscar time.

We'll keep updating this post with links to each new piece she files. Check back for more!
