Beautiful film. New found respect for the actors involved!,
This review is from: Snow Cake [DVD]  (DVD)
This was a beautifuly constructed and orcastrated film, delivering the story in a gentle yet forceful manner. Weaver is truely believable in her role and has given me a new found respect for her as an actor!!
The film moves gently, often lulling you into a restful security before giving you something to laugh about or be shocked by. I thought about this film for some time afterwards.
A quiet, gentle film, full of emotion and joy. Well worth a watch.
Don't expect a huge story with plot twists or excitement though. I'm sure many will call this Weaver's 'Rain Man'. She deserves the recognition!!
Alan Rickman is also perfect in his role. Himself, a lost sole who finds a new quality in life through his time with Weaver's character.
