The Toronto International Film Festival announced the first wave of titles Tuesday for this year's lineup, including that the festival will close with "A Little Chaos."
Directed by and starring Alan Rickman, the historical drama's cast also includes Kate Winslet and Stanley Tucci. It's about a landscape gardener invited to design one of the fountains at the Palace of Versailles, who battles the weather, perilous rivalries at the court of Louis XIV and her own private demons as she finds herself drawn closer to the formality and enigma of the architect who hired her.
"It is a great privilege for 'A Little Chaos' to have its world premiere in Toronto and for it to be given the festival's closing-night Gala, but it is also a very personal pleasure," said Rickman, according to Deadline. "I have filmed in the city, visited often, and some of my closest friends live there. It will be like coming home."
Other films on this year's slate include "The Imitation Game" starring Benedict Cumberbatch, "Foxcatcher" with Steve Carell and Channing Tatum, the Jake Gyllenhaal-starrer "Nightcrawler" and a double dose of Reese Witherspoon in "Wild" and "The Good Lie."
The lineup also has Antoine Fuqua's big-screen adaptation of "The Equalizer" with Denzel Washington, David Cronenberg's "Maps to the Stars" with Julianne Moore and Robert Pattinson, Jason Reitman's "Men, Women & Children" and "The Drop" with Tom Hardy.
