Drama . Thriller

The brutality of winter and the power of the mind are aptly portrayed in this dark comedy set in Northern Quebec. Bruce (Thomas Haden Church) is merely trying to survive a harsh winter when he meets Jean. Conflict leads to an accidental death, and Bruce finds himself in a complicated and unexpected place. Grappling with his guilt, Bruce creates a prison from which he cannot escape. Haden Church perfectly utilizes his comic talent in this wry, well-crafted film.

    Whitewash is a small but sparkling gem on ice.

  • Drew Hunt

    The film benefits greatly from this bait-and-switch narrative design, as Hoss-Desmarais dials down or otherwise forgoes exposition, backstory, and character development in favor of an ambiguous, almost ethereal dramaturgical approach.

    Thomas Haden Church hits the exact balance of desperation and resignation demanded by the peculiar story.

    A more dynamic character or script would have gone a long way to help audiences find their way through this storm.

    Church’s indelible character study can only carry this wan, skeletal picture so far.
