And now for a wildly improbable romantic comedy recommendation. Already a hit in its native England, "About Time" presents all sorts of small- and medium-sized problems threatening to upset writer-director Richard Curtis' film from within, beginning with the premise (Only men in this family can time travel? Are the women at least allowed to vote?) and including the clanking interpolation of near-death experiences designed to make us care. The charm of the script comes in three fabrics: genuine, artificial and what you might call a cotton/poly blend.

In "Morning Glory," Rachel McAdams gives the kind of performance we go to the movies for. The rest of the film isn't always up to her level, but it does provide genial entertainment until it runs out of steam. A "Broadcast News"-type saga of life behind the camera on a struggling national morning news show based in Manhattan, "Morning Glory" starts beautifully and, though it doesn't quite go the distance, it certainly has the credentials to do so. The film's script is by Aline Brosh McKenna, who charted a similar young-woman-on-the-rise trajectory in "The Devil Wears Prada.

With the sleekly trashy misfire "Passion," Brian De Palma turns his gift for artfully decadent imitation into a kind of regrettably soulless greatest-hits packaging. Frenchman Alain Corneau's venal 2010 thriller "Love Crime" is the skeleton, its story only slightly reworked by the man behind "Dressed to Kill. " It's now Rachel McAdams as the cold-blooded corporate executive with manipulative boardroom and bedroom designs on her seemingly mousy creative underling, played here by Noomi Rapace.

TORONTO - When it comes to Terrence Malick, history has a way of repeating itself. When the reclusive filmmaker premiered his mystical period piece "The Tree of Life" at the Cannes Film Festival in 2011, the movie elicited a passionately divided reaction - some viewers rapturously applauded, others booed. On Monday at the Toronto International Film Festival, Malick's "To the Wonder" - a romantic drama starring Ben Affleck, former Bond girl Olga Kurylenko and Rachel McAdams - made its North American debut.

When a movie calls itself "The Vow," you know it takes its love and its relationships seriously. And that's certainly the case with the new romantically and medically challenged weepie starring Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum. Despite the sweet story -- lovely couple, car wreck, brain injury, she forgets him, he loves her anyway -- and the beautiful scenery -- cool converted warehouse spaces, snowy Chicago streets, Lake Michigan in the moonlight, and of course Tatum and McAdams -- this is a movie that leaves you wanting more.

Passion Available on VOD on Thursday. Writer-director Brian De Palma's erotic thriller is an English-language remake of Alain Corneau's "Love Crime," a film about what happens when the war of wits between a female executive and her protégée turns kinky and then deadly. But De Palma takes Corneau's film and puts his own spin on it, riffing on business ethics, cronyism, gender roles, and how modern technologies like cellphones, security cameras and the Internet are changing all of the above.

TORONTO--The negativity that accompanied Terrence Malick's  “To the Wonder” at the Venice Film Festival last week was never likely to travel wholesale to Toronto, not with audiences here among the more generous in festivaldom. Still, when it landed on these shores Monday night, the reaction to the  auteur's romantic drama, his follow-up to last season's best picture nominee “The Tree of Life” and first-ever contemporary piece, was restrained to say the least. Tepid applause followed the screening at the Princess of Wales theatre, a contrast to enthusiastic clapping that follows a great many screenings at this festival.

Brian De Palma has been a figure of flash point intensity and argument throughout his career, from his intertwined explorations of sex and violence in "Dressed to Kill," "Blow Out" and "Body Double" to such giddy popcorn landmarks as "Scarface," "The Untouchables" and "Mission: Impossible. " A true lover and student of movies, he is a regular presence at the Toronto International Film Festival whether he has a new film or not, but this year De Palma will be there to present his "Passion" just a few days after its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival.The movie is a remake of Alain Corneau's 2010 French thriller "Love Crime," which starred Kristin Scott Thomas and Ludivine Sagnier as a seasoned executive and an up-and-comer locked into a dynamic of flirtation and manipulation that turns deadly.
