TORONTO — Next month's Toronto International Film Festival is ending on a regal note.
The closing-night film of the 10-day festival will be "The Young Victoria," starring Emily Blunt as the British queen in the early days of her nearly 64-year reign.
The film from French-Canadian director Jean-Marc Vallee also stars Jim Broadbent, Miranda Richardson, Paul Bettany and Rupert Friend. Julian Fellowes, who won an Academy Award for his "Gosford Park" script, wrote "The Young Victoria" screenplay.
Running Sept. 10-19, the Toronto festival is a major launching point for Hollywood's fall releases and Oscar contenders.
