75
Most noteworthy for the performance of Sigourney Weaver as Linda, an autistic woman.
75
Sigourney Weaver and Alan Rickman imbue screenwriter Angela Pell's characters with a quiet authenticity that's surprisingly moving.
70
Modest but well wrought and witty, Snow Cake is full of unexpected moments and clever observations.
70
Rickman and Weaver sell it, and the utterly heart wrenching finale is the big pay off, and the experience is worth it.
70
Does sidle up to the brink of mawkishness, but it pulls back so nicely into Weaver's rich, hard-headed evocation of Linda's limitations.
63
Snow Cake is dazlious, too: overly forced, a shade too whimsical, but filling a void other words and other movies haven't the nerve or errant taste to confront.
63
In the end, Weaver provides a moving and sensitive portrait of one person out of an estimated 400,000 in America with this mental disorder we are just beginning to understand.
50
An awfully tidy, infernally sparkly study in skewed blessings, made manifest by Committed Acting from Sigourney Weaver.
50
The Hollywood Reporter
The mental and physical landscape would do justice to an Atom Egoyan film, but in this film, the key dramatic moments feel as forced as they are predictable.
50
Alan Rickman holds the film together.
