Springsteen's 'Western Stars' scores standing ovation at Toronto Film Festival
Bruce Springsteen's concert movie "Western Stars" received a standing ovation at its premiere at the Toronto Film Festival on Thursday, with the rock star describing it as a "continuation of the stories" he has told throughout his career. In Western Stars, Springsteen performs songs from his latest album of the same title, but the film also features clips from his earlier years, and wide, sweeping shots of the landscape of the American West which served as inspiration.
The under-representation of women in Hollywood behind the camera is an "embarrassment", American actor and activist Geena Davis said at France's Deauville Film Festival. Davis, who starred in the cult classic "Thelma and Louise" with Susan Sarandon, criticized the Hollywood gender gap from the red carpet of the festival, where she was promoting her new documentary "This Changes Everything" on gender inequality.
