Snow Cake is a Canada/UK co-production set in the middle of winter in Wawa, Ontario. Alan Rickman plays a quiet, brooding man named Alex traveling at first by plane from England, then by car across Ontario when he takes a break at a truck stop. Here he meets the irrepressible Vivienne Freeman played flawlessly by Emily Hampshire. Later, following a tragic accident, Alex needs to find Vivienne`s sister, Linda, played by Sigourney Weaver. Linda is a high-functioning autistic woman played with an authenticity that shows Weaver`s abilities as an actor unlike any other role she has ever attempted. When Alex enters her life he becomes captured for a time in Wawa. Captured by his guilt, his needs, and by next door neighbour Maggie, played gently and beautifully by Carrie-Anne Moss. The film had its Canadian premiere at the 2006 Toronto International Film Festival.
