Anna Kendrick Explains Why She’s ‘Heartbroken’ About Missing Her Directorial Debut’s Premiere Due To The Strikes


On Friday, at the 48th Toronto International Film Festival, Anna Kendrick reached a major milestone in her career when her directorial debut, the thriller Woman of the Hour, premiered. However, it’s a moment that the actress unfortunately could not attend and experience for herself due to the ongoing SAG-AFTRA actors strike. As the movie found its first audience, a letter penned by Kendrick, who also stars in the film, was read that shared her disappointment over her absence. 

During the TIFF premiere for Woman Of The Hour, which tells the story of American serial killer Rodney Alcala, one of the movie’s producers read a statement from Kendrick explaining her thoughts about missing the festival. In her words (via People): 

I truly can’t express how proud I am to have the world premiere of Woman of the Hour at TIFF. It is more than a dream come true. I am heartbroken to not be with you all in this moment.
