Bleak but superbly acted drama about grief.
4 April 2017 | by (Birmingham, England) – See all my reviews

Winter is a drama about a man who has a breakdown following the death of his wife. The story follows how this affects the lives of his two boys.

A sparse and haunting soundtrack is the perfect accompaniment to this bleak drama. Tommy Flanagan is great as the husband struggling to cope with his enormous grief despite knowing that it is affecting his children. The hugely likable and ridiculously young looking for his age Tom Payne is also great as the responsible older brother.

Although this film lacks standout moments it always holds your attention thanks to it's fine cast. As you'd expect this is not a fun film to watch but does a great job of showing how hard grief can hit us all.

Winter is a very good emotional drama done on a small budget that is better than the sum of it's parts. Highly recommended.
