AKA other than awards season it's a slow movie month. I don't know how many of you live in the frozen tundra that is the north like I do, but if so, then you're also in the negative double digits today. It got me thinking about movies that I love that the winter weather plays a major part in. Whether it be in just a few scenes, or if the whole movie takes place during the winter time. I tried to stay away from holiday films since we're past that, so here are 5 of my favorite winter movies!
Winter Passing: This wonderful little film showed me that Will Ferrell can do drama and established Zooey Deschanel as the Indie Queen. Great performances all around, and a very touching story.
Let The Right One In: The original. Not the crap remake. The one that was shot in beautiful snowy Sweden. I think of our characters out on the snow covered playground, when Oskar asks Eli if she is cold, (as she is outside barefoot with no coat) and she replies that she has forgotten how.
