Here are some pictures of Jane at the TIFF Photocall for “Bang Bang Baby” today :



Finding the rising star at a film festival can be a fun challenge for journalists. Every year, there are a few names that come out of fests like Sundance and TIFF with more household status than when they went in. This year’s fest circuit has already propelled Adam Driver beyond even the “Star Wars” casting news—he has three movies at this year’s TIFF and just won an acting award at Venice for “Hungry Hearts.” He’s clearly on the rise. But who’s the actress on an upward trajectory? Who may you not know now but will shortly?

After destroying at SXSW in last year’s “Evil Dead,” Jane Levy comes to Toronto for the first time, giving another stellar performance in the totally bizarre and future cult hit “Bang Bang Baby,” a sci-fi musical period piece that premieres tonight. Think “Hairspray” meets “Plan 9 From Outer Space” and you’ll be close. It’s a straight-up musical about a small-town girl hoping to break free from her drab life and start a singing career when a leak at the chemical plant, well, gets in the way. Co-starring Peter Stormare and Justin Chatwin, the film is courtesy of Canadian director Jeffrey St. Jules, and marks one of this year’s more unique TIFF offerings, to say the least.

Levy is one of those rare actresses who seems to challenge herself with each role, jumping from teen comedy to horror to musical, and so on. She’s poised, beautiful and smart. I walked into my interview thinking I was speaking to a rising star, and walked out thinking she already was one.

Let’s talk about range. Take “Fun Size,” “Evil Dead,” “About Alex,” and “Bang Bang Baby”—they have almost nothing in common but you. Is diversity in genre something that’s important to you and intentional on your part?

Bang Bang Baby, the new period genre musical from Jeffrey St. Jules premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival, is a mash-up of teen melodrama, drive-in romance and B-movie sci-fi of the 1950s. The visual effects include green screens, rear projection and a highly stylized art direction.
