"A third of the films at TIFF are made by women; here are your must-sees":

Chastain is a TIFF two-timer this year, also starring in Woman Walks Ahead, playing 19th-century artist and Native rights activist Caroline Weldon. The film is directed by Susanna White (Nanny McPhee Returns, Our Kind of Traitor), which makes it one of more than 100 features and shorts from female filmmakers at this year’s festival.
