January 22, 2007
Screened at the 2006 Toronto International Film Festival, Snow Cake is an intimate drama about the relationship between an autistic woman and a man recovering from a traumatic car accident.
Set in an unnamed Canadian town (it was filmed in Wawa, Ontario), Snow Cake unfolds gently as it introduces its quirky, flawed protagonists. Alex (Alan Rickman) is a quiet, sullen man, who one day offers a ride to Vivienne (Emily Hampshire), an innocent and sociable hitchhiker.
Through no fault of his own, Alex has a freak accident that claims Vivienne’s life but leaves Alex virtually unscathed. Overcome with guilt and remorse, he sets out to find Vivienne’s mother, Linda (Sigourney Weaver), who turns out to be an autistic woman lacking in social skills who communicates by keenly observing the people around her.
