Snow Angels

including Kate Beckinsale (“Pearl Harbor”), Michael Angarano (“The Forbidden Kingdom”), Amy Sedaris (TV’s”Strangers With Candy”), Nicky Katt (“Sin City”) and Olivia Thirlby (“Juno “). Rockwell plays Glenn, a recovering loser who’s separated from wife Annie (Beckindale) who kept custody of their 4-year-old daughter.

Annie works with Arthur (Angarano), who she babysat in a bygone era, and Barb (Sedaris), who is married to Nate (Katt), with whom Annie has a “special” relationship. In the meantime Arthur’s establishing a high-school romance with Lila (Thirlby), the geeky-but-cute new girl in class. As complicated and precarious as the balance between all these characters is initially, it gets worse.

An adaptation of a novel by acclaimed author (and pal of Stephen King) Stewart O’Nan, “Snow Angels” is one of the most depressing character-driven dramas in recent memory. It’s depressing, but it only manages to be so through strong character-appeal and storytelling, making it worth the emotional maiming. R
