After playing so many Americans in her career, Kate Winslet didn't have any trouble performing in that accent at sub-zero temperatures. She possessed such a grasp of the dialect that as soon as the scene was over, she would revert back to her authentic English accent, leaving Idris Elba astonished: "When I'm acting as an American, I have to talk the American [accent] all the time. I can't do what she does, when she just switch back and forth. I was like 'Wow, your amazing! How'd you do that?'" See more »

I was very excited to hear about this movie and made it the date night movie for the week. For those calling this a slow movie, it is that because this is a character piece, not an action film. This is not even about romance to me, but more how in a bad situation two people find out who they really are and overcome their fears. These fears are not about the snow, FYI. The director does not spoon feed the plot to you, he expects you to be intelligent enough to get it. Both actors did an amazing job of emoting with their body language and facial expressions. I do not think the other proposed actors could have pulled off this nuanced performance
