One of Cory Monteith‘s two final films, “All the Wrong Reasons,” has won the Grolsch Film Works Discover Award at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF). Director Gia Milani was on hand to receive the $10,000 cash prize on Monday, after the film debuted on Sunday.
The drama also stars Emily Hampshire, Kevin Zegers and Karine Vanasse. “All the Wrong Reasons” centers around a big box store manager (Monteith), who is having intimacy with his wife (Vanasse) as she suffers from PTSD. Zegers plays a firefighter who begins having an affair with Vanasse’s character, and Hampshire is a store clerk who begins having an affair with Monteith’s character.
Monteith died earlier this summer to an accidental overdose of heroin and alcohol. “All the Wrong Reasons” allowed the actor to shed his wholesome “Glee” image for the much more adult role.
TIFF takes place the rest of this week and will conclude on the weekend. More prizes will be given out at the Blackberry People’s Choice audience awards.
