Chloë Grace Moretz is luminous at the premiere of Brain on Fire

Chloe Grace Moretz at TIFF premiere of Brain on FireWhile the weather was perfectly sunny in Toronto last evening, it was Chloë Grace Moretz who lit up the TIFF red carpet for her true-story drama Brain on Fire.

Rocking a gorgeous yellow brocade gown, the 19-year-old movie star was joined by the film's director Gerard Barrett, co-star Robert Moloney, as well as the real-life woman she portrayed on screen, New York Post journalist Susannah Cahalan. There wasn't a photo without a laugh, smile, or hug with the two, as both Chloë and Cahalan appeared delighted to be walking the red carpet together.

Brain on Fire is a Canadian/Irish film that follows Cahalan through various health issues, as her state worsens from hearing voices and seizures, to sudden violence, and then ultimately to catatonia. As she descends into madness and delusion, all hope is lost until a medical miracle and an incredible neurologist, Dr. Souhel Najjar, somehow saves her life.

At the film's press conference, Chloë called her starring turn as Cahalan "the role of  a lifetime," saying, "You get to kind of break a lot of stereotypes that surround people with illnesses. I think above all, it's more than a movie about illness, it's a story about labelling and mislabelling, and misunderstanding and how far a misunderstanding can go."

    She's a sexy young woman, but she's made a lot of bad films. She recently announced that she's taking a break from acting. Chloe please: when you return to work-NO MORE CRAPPY REMAKES PLEASE!

    What's up with the ultra-dark lipstick? Not a good look, Chloe.
