A nice article courtesy Awards Daily: $240,000 in 4 theaters; PSA (per screen average): $60,000 Though not unheralded, this new comedy from Nicole Holofcener (“Please Give,” “Friends With Money”) was not expected to open among the top platform grosses for the year, nor to be so clear a winner over “Rush.” It turns out to be Fox Searchlight’s top limited opener since “The Tree of Life” (the company often opens its top films like “Black Swan” and “The Descendants” in more than two cities). This ranks as the third best limited opening of the year (after “Blue Jasmine” and “The Place Beyond the Pines”). Read the complete article and more reviews here.

September remains a busy month for Toni. On Monday, a New York screening for “Enough Said” was held, which was attended by the cast and crew of the film. Yesterday, Toni and Tate Donovan rang the NYSE Opening Bell. And later that day, Toni was spotted at An Evening Of Dance Featuring Roberto Bolle And Friends in New York. Pictures from all three events have been added to the gallery. October will probably be just as extensive as Toni will attend the New York Film Festival as well.
A new interview with Toni Collette and Dylan McDermott has been published by Parade Magazine. n this “limited event” series of Hostages (it will air 15 episodes consecutively, no repeats), a surgeon (Toni Collette) slated to operate on the president is taken hostage along with her family and told to kill him during the procedure. The head bad guy? None other than an FBI agent played by Dylan McDermott. Hostages, which is one of Parade‘s picks for fall’s top 10 new shows), premieres on Sept. 23 on CBS.
Toni, will your character be revealed to be not as morally upstanding as she seems in the first episode?
Collette: Nobody is [what they seem], and that’s one of the things that drew me to this. All the characters are very real and complex. The intense amount of pressure that this family is put under is a very negative situation, obviously, but something very positive comes out of it for [my character].

Additionally to the video, pictures from her arrival have been added to the image library, as well as HD screencaptures from the programme.
