Toronto: Robert Redford & Dustin Hoffman Show Off Directorial Talents 36 Years Later

Pete Hammond

They famously co-starred as Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein in the 1976 classic All The President’s Men. And Sunday at the Toronto International Film Festival they were together again – sort of.  In an odd coincidence, both Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman unveiled their latest directing efforts in back to back North American premieres. At 10 PM in another theatre nearby, Redford with little fanfare and no other cast members present presided over the North American premiere of his new all-star drama The Company You Keep which Sony Pictures Classics will release next year. While Hoffman hosted the world premiere of the senior comedy Quartet and then conducted with the cast a post-screening Q&A filled with laughs and behind-the-scenes intel.

Quartet about a retirement home for opera stars features Maggie Smith, Tom Courtenay, Pauline Collins and Billy Connolly as seniors who refuse to go gently into that good night. They were all in Toronto for the debut at the Elgin Theatre, and the crowd-pleasing film will be released by The Weinstein Company in December in time to qualify for Oscars.  Read More »
