Popcorn: Snow Cake. BBC i Player


I don't generally do movies on the blog but I watched Snow cake on the box last night, superbly cast with more than credible performances from Alan Rickman and Carrie-Anne Moss but Sigourney Weaver's portrayal of the autistic Linda Freeman was scintillating.

Drama focused on the friendship between a high-functioning autistic woman, Linda, and a man who is traumatised after a fatal car accident. Ex-convict Alex Hughes picks up a hitch-hiker called Vivienne while driving to Winnipeg to see an old friend. She is killed when Hughes's car crashes, and he decides to seek out her mother.
Alex Hughes - Alan Rickman
Linda Freeman - Sigourney Weaver
Maggie - Carrie-Ann Moss

Probably only accessible within the UK but if you do manage to hook up to it from outside the country you might let me know in the comments.
Available streaming for six more days or download and keep for thirty.
