Snow Cake

Alan Rickman plays the taciturn Alex who has travelled to Canada following the death of a son he barely knew. Driving through a winter landscape a freak accident forces him to stop over in a small town where he meets Linda (Sigourney Weaver), a high-functioning autistic woman unable to express emotion. As Alex spends more time with her he finds himself drawn to the small community she lives in and to Linda's neighbour (Carrie-Anne Moss). An intriguing and beautifully-filmed drama written specifically with Rickman in mind for the lead character.
