The Winter Guest

New Line; rental pricing
Feature; R
Director:Alan Rickman
Cast:Emma Thompson and Phillida Law

Real-life mother and daughter Thompson and Law star in actor Rickman's poignant directorial debut about, yes, a mother and daughter living in a craggy Scottish harbor town. It's the usual bickering and life-questioning stuff, but, not surprisingly, Thompson and Law possess a natural presence together, and the subplots -- a teenage love story, schoolboys pondering the fate of stray kittens -- flesh out the film with layered imagery and themes.
