Who’s Going? Brain on Fire TIFF Screening Dates

Hello Richard Armitage Canadian and other North American fans. Brain on Fire will have 3 screenings at TIFF, only one of them now listed  for the public.

On Wednesday, September 14,  press and industry will see the premiere.

On Friday, September 16 at 1:1 5 there is a showing for Press and Industry and at  6 P.M. Premium tickets are available for the public – on sale now, I think.

On Saturday, September 17 at 6 P.M. it appears there is another press and industry screening.

This is the most I could make from the information on line, except that TIFF offers rush tickets(last minute – 10 minutes before) and free tickets to some screenings. here Or – you might be able to purchase a small package that will give you a chance to see BOF and some other films ( not sure of this).

My guess is that with three industry showings, there is a good chance rush tickets might be available for the private performances.

Reviews might come as early as September 14 unless there is some embargo.

So, who’s thinking of going?

Shah, Shaw, Now I’m Sure

Notice how Richard Armitage, as Daniel Miller, pronounces the name Shaw the first three times he says it, up to around 0:38 on the video.. It sounds more like Shah (but not quite), the first three times he says it, up to around 0:38 on the video.

This is not how I pronounce the name, which sounds more that the vowel sound in the word shore, but without the r.

Richard Jenkins, as his character,  pronounces the name the way I do. (0:55).

So does Richard Armitage, in his interview, at about 0:42, presumably filmed much later.

I’m curious to see whether Armitage’s pronunciation remains consistent, or was there a correction somewhere along the line, perhaps from his dialogue coach? Was the trailer edited first, before the ADR?

Otherwise, so far, his American accent is sounding good. We should hear more of it if there’s a trailer or clip from Brain In Fire.

Let’s hope he nails it.
