When Cory Monteith tragically passed away in July, the 31-year-old actor had completed work on two films, both of which are premiering at the Toronto Film Festival next week. In McCanick, Monteith plays a felon on the run from David Morse’s cop, and in All the Wrong Reasons, he plays the square regional manager of a department store whose marriage is going through some turmoil. His wife (Karine Vanasse), who works the surveillance cameras at the store, is still traumatized by her sister’s suicide and is struggling with intimacy issues… causing Monteith’s character to take a greater interest in one of his cashiers, a pretty single-mom (Emily Hampshire). When that interest blossoms into something more, you can only hope the couple has the self-control and good judgment to keep their illicit romance hidden from the store’s eye-in-the-sky. You can only hope. As the wife says in the exclusive trailer below, “the whole human experience unfolds daily” on these store cameras.
All the Wrong Reasons, the first feature from Canadian director Gia Milani, premieres in Toronto on Sept. 8.
