Top Critic Reviews
Fresh: It's well-made. Searingly acted. Potent. And by the time it was over, its climax realized at the water's edge of insanity and grief, I felt beaten about the head with sticks.
- Amy Biancolli, Houston Chronicle, Friday, April 11, 2008
Fresh: Yes, it's painful, but Snow Angels is so full of rich performances and characterizations that even gunshots can't kill its power.
- Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic, Thursday, April 3, 2008
Fresh: A drama that finds a delicate balance between the consolations of romance and the bitterness of its failure.
- Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune, Thursday, March 20, 2008
Sam Rockwell and Kate Beckisale turn in brilliant performances in this moving tale of an estranged, alcoholic husband/father, the life of a teenager, an old baby sitter, and an emotionally frazzled young woman. This film is not a "pick me up" piece of drama, but worth seeing nevertheless.

Kind of depressing and I can't see myself wanting to sit and watch it again, but a good movie.

A very devastating story guided by great performances from the entire cast. Kate Beckinsale has impressed me with her dramatic acting abilities in this and Nothing But The Truth. I didn't realize how awesome Olivia Thirlby is until I saw this movie. She was simply delightful. Sam Rockwell on the other hand is entirely the opposite and he plays it to almost perfection. The ending I wasn't a big fan of, but I didn't hate it. By then I was already wrapped up in the story.
