“Argo,” “Silver Linings” lead Toronto buzz; business simmers

TORONTO, Sept 12: Ben Affleck’s political thriller “Argo” and David O. Russell’s comedic drama “Silver Linings Playbook” are winning widespread praise at the midpoint of the Toronto International Film Festival, with early sluggish sales beginning to pick up. Toronto, along with recent festivals in Venice and Telluride, traditionally launches the movie industry’s major awards season. Some of the more hyped films heading into the festival have won over critics and audiences, while others have divided film buffs, suggesting possible box office and awards disappointments.
