Redford, Knightley films among Toronto fest debuts

- Associated Press - Tuesday, July 27, 2010

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Robert Redford's Lincoln assassination tale "The Conspirator" and Keira Knightley and Carey Mulligan's drama "Never Let Me Go" are among films premiering at September's Toronto International Film Festival.

A showcase for potential Academy Awards contenders, the Toronto festival announced many of the titles Tuesday that will have their world premieres at the event Sept. 9-19.

Director Redford's "The Conspirator" stars James McAvoy, Robin Wright Penn, Kevin Kline and Evan Rachel Wood in a tale of a union war hero defending a woman accused of aiding her son in Lincoln's assassination.

"Never Let Me Go" casts Knightley and Mulligan as boarding school friends coming to grips with their sheltered past as adults in the real world.
