Salma Hayek, who stars in and has served as an executive producer on Septembers of Shiraz, turns heads in a dress that featured a plunging neckline and beadwork as she arrives for the film's TIFF premiere. 

An upcoming American drama directed by Wayne Blair, the film is based on Iranian-born American writer Dalia Sofer's well regarded 2007 novel The Septembers of Shiraz.

Hayek's Septembers of Shiraz costar Adrien Brody cuts a sharp figure at the film's premiere.

While the film's stars made quite a splash at the premiere, the film itself has garnered lukewarm response from critics.

Leslie Felperin of The Hollywood Reporter begins her review with, 'Heavy with earnest good intentions but too underpowered and oddly packaged to deliver the emotional gut punch its subject demands, Septembers of Shiraz is a disappointing misfire.'

Actors Shia LaBeouf and Kate Mara attend the Man Down premiere at the Roy Thomson Hall in Toronto, Canada.

Touted as a post-apocalyptic war thriller and directed by Shia LaBeouf's pal Dito Montiel, the film happens to be LaBeouf's first film as the lead after starring in impressive multistarrers like Fury, The Company you Keep, Charlie Countryman and Lars Von Trier's Nymphomaniac.
