Cory Monteith’s Film “All The Wrong Reasons” Wins $10,000 Award
Cory Monteith (Finn) may not be with us anymore, but the Glee star’s work as an actor will remain on film forever. What’s more, one of his final films just won an award — and that award has a $10,000 prize to go along with it!
All The Wrong Reasons, the Canadian indie in which Cory plays a store manager whose wife is suffering from PTSD, debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival on Friday, September 6, and The Hollywood Reporter reveals that it has already won the Grolsch Film Works Discovery Award.
Canadian director Gia Milani received the award and the $10,000 cash prize, for the film, beating out 27 other potential prizewinners. The film, which was shot back in 2012, also stars Karine Vanasse as the wife of Cory’s character, Emily Hampshire as the young store clerk he becomes romantically involved with, and Kevin Zegers as his wife’s lover.
Cory passed away suddenly of an accidental heroin and alcohol overdose on July 13. Along with this film, he also played the role of a drug dealer in the indie movie, McCanick, which will premiere during this same festival. There are more awards to come before the event is over. Here’s hoping Cory’s films end up taking home a few more!
