Snow Angels (2007)

This is a complete 180 from “Pineapple Express” for David Gordon Green.

“Snow Angels” is about a small Canadian town and its inhabitants. The plot focuses on Arthur (Michael Angarano), an angst-ridden teenager that is dealing with growing up from a broken home. He works at the local Chinese restaurant, China Town, with Annie (Kate Beckinsale). She is estranged from her alcoholic, bible thumper husband, Glen (Sam Rockwell) and is having an affair with the sleazy husband Nate (Nicky Katt) of Barb (Amy Sedaris).

A disappearance happens that sends the whole town into a frenzy until some tragic events happens at the second half of the movie.

I have to say that Amy Sedaris is my goddess right now. I love her. She should her own show like yesterday. She is so funny.

I’m on the fence about this movie. It’s an acquired taste for some people. It’s very bleak and gloomy. Be forewarned.
