Snow Angels

Q: What’s the movie about?

A: A character drama that juxtaposes the heartache and disappointment of adult couples breaking up, with the wide-eyed innocence of a teenage couple discovering first love.

Q: Who’s in the movie?

A: Kate Beckinsdale, Sam Rockwell, Michael Angarano, Olivia Thirlby, Jeanetta Arnette, Griffin Dunne, Amy Sedaris, Nicky Katt, Gracie Hudson

Q: Is this movie worth the price of admission?

A: PhotobucketProceed with Caution. It's a high quality indy, but many people would consider this film depressing. Then again, some people like that.

Q: Will this movie make me laugh?

A: Not often, but pretty loudly when you do.

Q: Will this movie make me cry?

A: You will watch many powerful emotions, but not necessarily feel them in your own heart.

Q: Will this movie be up for any awards?

A: Sam Rockwell deserves an Independent Spirit Award for his performance as a shunned, alcoholic father and husband, with a questionable level of sanity.

Q: How is the Acting?

A: It's easy to see why actors looking for a challenge would choose to sink their teeth into these complex roles. And it's no surprise that veterans like Sam Rockwell and Kate Beckinsale bring depth and realism to these mostly improvised emotional scenes, but to see Gracie Hudson, (who can't be more than 4 years old), step up to the challenge of facing off with these old pros in her first role ever, is really something .

Q: How is the Directing?

A: David Gordon Green has a consistent style, that keeps his films looking simple and real.

Q: How is the story/script?

A: There are good scenes and good moments. There are dramatic turns and relatable human behaviors. But I never really felt like the story sucked me in or engrossed me emotionally.
