Toronto International Film Festival 

Something that Cecilia and I did that was super cool was to go see a movie that was part of the Toronto International Film Festival. We went to watch Colonia, featuring Emma Watson.

I didn’t really know what the movie was about (Cecilia had mentioned something about it being political thriller) so I honestly had no idea what to expect but I actually ended up really enjoying it.

Basically the movie was about a couple who gets accidentally sucked up into the middle of a political situation in Argentina. It focuses on Colonia Dignidad, a religious sect that has very strong Nazist/fascist influences. I thought it was really cool because this was something that I learned about back when I was an Italian major. It was definitely haunting but it was a fabulous movie!!!

Here’s the trailer if you’re interested!
