What to watch: TIFF and Sully

The Toronto International Film Festival is officially under way, after kicking off the 41st edition of the festival Thursday night with The Magnificent Seven. The Globe and Mail's Barry Hertz says opening this year's festival with the "Hollywood gloss" film "just might be the smartest thing TIFF has done in years." Read the full column.

With star power both in front of and behind the camera, Sully, starring Tom Hanks and Laura Linney and directed by Clint Eastwood, is about US Airways Flight 1549, which hit a flock of geese shortly after take-off and wound up landing on the Hudson River. Hanks plays the pilot, Chesley (Sully) Sullenberger, who guided the flight down and who has been praised for saving all 155 people on board. "Seeing that giant CGI bird splash down, especially on an Imax screen, makes you realize how improbable the whole enterprise was," writes The Globe's Simon Houpt. Read the full review.

What to read: What the F and In Praise of Profanity

Is it still wrong to swear? Globe and Mail columnist Elizabeth Renzetti reviews two books this week that attempt to answer the question. Benjamin K. Bergen's What the F: What Swearing Reveals About Our Language, Our Brains, and Ourselves and Michael Adams's In Praise of Profanity suggest profanity changes and adapts alongside general speech. What was once considered taboo may no longer be frowned upon. "It depends on the precise words used, on the context in which they were spoken, whether as a way of bonding or as a form of insult, if they were sung blithely or spat out in anger, written in a newspaper or on someone's blog," Renzetti writes. "We're living in a deeply conflicted age in terms of lexical restraint." Read the review.

What to cook: A vegetarian feast

There's still time to enjoy the flavours of summer, and Globe and Mail contributor Lucy Waverman has prepared a vegetarian feast for entertaining. A no-cook soup with end-of-season tomatoes, pasta with black garlic and mushrooms, and a peach shortcake, are the perfect menu pairings for a summer send-off. Try the recipes.

What to drink: Lesser known wine varietals

Story continues below advertisement

The Globe and Mail's wine columnist Beppi Crosariol picks his top five "uncommon" wine varietals this week – though he mentions his selections change frequently depending on his mood. When he is looking for something out of the ordinary, he'll turn to Italy, not France, as it is the "grape-diversity capital of the world." Crosariol also encourages readers to go beyond the usual selections of pinot noir, Riesling, sauvignon blanc and syrah when looking for "uncommon" wines. "The world beyond chardonnay and merlot is vast – and worth exploring, one eye-opening glass at a time," he writes. Read the full column.
