Rating: R
Category: Drama

The Pitch: Stewart O'Nan's acclaimed novel comes to the big screen in the form of David Gordon Green's adaptation of "Snow Angels," in which a pair of stories -- one about a couple confronting tragedy, the other about a young man struggling with deep-seated personal problems -- intertwine.

The Buzz: O'Nan isn't a household name, but if enough critics hop on this movie's bandwagon, that could all change -- and with a cast that includes Sam Rockwell, Amy Sedaris, and Kate Beckinsale, we'd lay better-than-even odds on the author moving up a tax bracket or two this year.

Trailer Highlight: The highlight, really, is the fact that the trailer doesn't give away every single goddamn plot point in two and a half minutes. You might even watch it and come away without understanding what the movie's about, even. Remember when trailers did that?

Bottom Line: Don't go in expecting tons of yuks, but this could be one of the first quarter's finest.
