Lee’s newest film – Ceremony – premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival today. In it, he plays Whit, Uma Thurman’s love interest and “a self-important documentary filmmaker who’s an outrageous cross between Jacques Costeau and ‘Crocodile Hunter’ Steve Irwin.” Visit the gallery to view pictures from the event; Lee showed up to the premiere bearded and in very casual attire. Below are quick excerpts from a few film reviewers who were able to attend the screening:
@firstshowing: Ceremony was great. Fantastic debut for Max Winkler, definitely a filmmaker to keep an eye on. Wonderful film, enjoyed it.
@ioncinema: TIFF Day 5: Ceremony: Max Fischer-esque kid in an adult body. Max Winkler’s debut is strong & feels like an original take in the sub-genre
@slashfilm: Max Winkler is a filmmaker to look out for in the years to come. Good performances, great cast, Well written dialogue, Jake Johnson is a scene stealer.
