Celebrity news: David Bowie biopic kicks off Inside Out fest with drive-in screening
Entertainment
Toronto’s Inside Out film festival, championing LGBT filmmakers and themes, announced Wednesday that it will open this year’s event with a drive-in premiere screening of “Stardust,” a David Bowie biopic starring Johnny Flynn (who co-starred with Anya Taylor-Joy in this year’s “Emma”) as the charismatic late rock ‘n’ roller.

“Stardust,” directed by Gabriel Range, co-stars Marc Maron and was filmed in and around Toronto last year. It takes place during the 24-year-old Bowie’s first road trip to America in 1971, with publicist Ron Oberman (Maron) in tow, as they face a world not yet ready for the budding pop superstar. Jena Malone also stars in the film.

The film will open the fest’s 30th year with a drive-in screening event on Oct. 1 at Ontario Place. This year’s festival will take place strictly online and with drive-in events.

Inside Out also announced two additional titles that will screen online, “Monsoon” from director Hong Khaou, which stars Henry Golding (“Crazy Rich Asians”), and “Through The Glass Darkly,” a new thriller from director Lauren Fash, starring Robyn Lively.
