Which movies should you check out at the AFI Film Fest?

November 4, 2010 | 12:45 pm


The year-end award season is gearing up, and if you weren't able to make it to the  Toronto International Film Festival this year, then the AFI Film Fest, which starts tonight, is your best bet to see a whole roster of buzz-worthy movies in one week. And even better than Toronto, there's a good chance you'll be able to see many of the movies free if you're lucky enough to get tickets.

But with 66 films shown over the course of eight days, there's no way any one person no matter how movie-mad can see all of them. To make matters easier, we've compiled an interactive rundown of 15 movies that are definitely worth checking out: foreign must-sees, hidden gems and some of Hollywood's heaviest award hitters.
