'Snow' Falls on Berlin Film Festival
The Berlin Film Festival got under way Thursday night with the screening of Marc Evans' Snow Cake, in which Sigourney Weaver plays an autistic woman who becomes involved in a romance with a man, played by Alan Rickman, who survives a car crash. The film is competing for the top prize at the festival, the Golden Bear. Reviewing the film, Catherine Hickley of Bloomberg News concluded, "If it's a harbinger of things to come over the next 10 days, the festival should be a real treat." The film also stars Carrie-Anne Moss and James Allodi.
Now you can add Sigourney to the list of actresses who could really make a rally for Best Actress who have yet to win one. Annette Bening, Glenn Close, Kate Winslet, umm... there were others that I listed in my 2006 preview, but I can't remember now. So glad Sigourney's working, i hope Australia gets this movie at least. We didn't get The Boys at all. :(
