ONE CHANCE

NOW Magazine - TIFF - - FILM FESTIVAL PREVIEW -

Okay, file this one un­der “ex­pected guilty plea­sure.” Paul Potts is the or­di­nary bloke whose un­re­mark­able life changed overnight after he dis­played his op­er­atic skills to the world on the re­al­ity show Bri­tain’s Got Tal­ent. This biopic of him is di­rected by David Frankel, who made The Devil Wears Prada lots of fun, and the lead is played by James Cor­den, whose ath­letic, far­ci­cal turn in the stage com­edy One Man, Two Gu­vnors was so good it beat out Philip Seymour Hoff­man’s Willy Lo­man for the Tony Award (as well as get­ting him no­ticed for this project and a plum role in the film adap­ta­tion of Stephen Sond­heim’s Into The Woods.) Septem­ber 9, 8 pm, Win­ter Gar­den; Septem­ber 10, 5 pm, TIFF Bell Light­box 1
