Reel Toronto: I Was a Rat

TV movies are a sticky business, folks. Quality-wise, they tend to range from “ew” to “that was surprisingly not-terrible!” Most are unremarkable in any way except in that (as you will see) they provide a fun opportunity to see some of our finest stars of stage and screen appearing in weird, random roles. We’re going […]
