Adrien Brody makes a surprise appearance during the Blindness premiere held at the Elgin Theatre during the Toronto International Film Festival. He’s sporting a burly beard, and almost goes unnoticed.
Julianne Moore, Gael Garcia Bernal, Mark Ruffalo and director Fernando Mereilles are among the all-stars in the mystery drama that tells the story about what happens when a town is overcome by loss of sight.
“I love Toronto,” Julianne says. “My family likes it here, too. It’s a great city.”
And, what about the cast?
“There are tremendously talented people coming out of Latin America right now,” Julianne says. “It was a privilege to work with them.”
Here is Gael, who asks if we’d like him to speak in English or Spanish.
“This is the official premiere of the baby,” he says. “I feel all right. Everything’s good. Life is good. I’m dying to see the film because this is the new version. I saw the first version in Cannes, and I’m looking forward to it.”
Time for baby talk about the little one he’s expecting with girlfriend Dolores Fonzi.
“I don’t know!” Gael says. “I really want to know. I’m unemployed at the moment.”
Did Mark bring the family to Toronto?
“I took her as a date,” he says, pointing to wife Sunrise. “It’s going to be a six-day date.”
The three kids are at home.
Blindness is in theaters September 26.
