Snow Cake

Alex Hughes (Alan Rickman) watches Linda Freeman (Sigourney Weaver) jumping on a trampoline in Snow Cake. This is a lovely film, a sort of Odyssey in the sense of Alan Rickman's character coming home to himself.

Tom said...

Liked that film...!

There’s definitely an Rickmanesque absent-mindedness here. I think I started watching this film once but was working too and missed most of it. Better find it again

Ben, Tom, Titus- Hope you will look for this independent Canadian film.

Ger- It makes sense to me that you enjoyed it.

I love Alan Rickman. Well drawn.

One of my favourite films. It takes you on a journey.
Love your images too. Maybe we 'grown ups' should all have a trampoline in our gardens, to jump for joy when we feel the need!

her- I promised you this drawing long ago - I kept trying to draw him with the glasses which made him look shifty, finally just drew him without.

Beautiful, as is the movie! Now that should have been touted by the H'wood crowd... the background colour is perfect as well, Susan.

I'd not thought of it as an Odyssey but you're right about that.
Take care.

I've seen that film and your depiction of the trampoline scene is wonderful.

Tomás Serrano said...

You know, Susan, I make a scene with Sigourney Weaver in Ridley Scott´s "1492". The film was partly shot in Salamanca and, unfortunately, the scene was out in the final cut. She is a very kind person.

Oh, I love Alan Rickman and will definitely have to look that film up. And a completely handsome drawing of him too.
