No one likes to sit through a thank-you speech that lasts more than 30 seconds, so when the cast and director of A Beginner’s Guide to Endings had to stand on the stage while producer Nicholas Tabarrok went off on his second tangent behind the podium, Harvey Keitel threw his hands in the air and walked off the stage—followed by director Jonathan Sobol and the rest of the attending cast members, including Tricia Helfer, Paulo Costanzo and Jason Jones. The audience inside Roy Thomson Hall erupted in gasps and laughter as Tabarrok continued with his speech, which even drove TIFF co-director Piers Handling to walk out on him as a follow-up gag.
