Last year marked the 20th anniversary of Alanis Morissette's Jagged Little Pill, better known as the soundtrack of your angsty '90s youth. Before Drake became Toronto's best-known musical export, it was Morissette who was Canada's greatest gift to the radio. The Ottawa native relocated to Toronto to record Jagged Little Pill, and from there, "Ironic," "Hand in My Pocket," "Head Over Feet," and, of course, "You Oughta Know," were birthed unto the airwaves. "You Oughta Know" was the record's lead single, and it proceeded to earn nominations for three Grammy awards, winning two of them — Best Rock Song and Best Female Rock Vocal Performance. But perhaps the track's most important triumph yet is its reimagining in the hands of nine actors straight out of the Toronto International Film Festival. Anya Taylor-Joy of The Witch, *Orange Is the New Black'*s Uzo Aduba, Rebecca Hall of The BFG and Christine, Sandra Oh, and Cynthia Nixon are just a few of the celebrities who are up to the challenge of tackling one of Morissette's best-known songs.
With a slight grimace and lift of her eyebrows, Lyndsey Marshal declares, "I wish the best for you both" — some understated, some outrageous, each actor brings his or her own (slightly passive-aggressive) interpretation to the track. Your favorite '90s alt classic, as told by your TIFF favorites.
