    Kirk Honeycutt The Hollywood Reporter

    Ty Burr Boston Globe

    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. show more

    Sigourney Weaver and Alan Rickman absolutely delivered powerful performances in this indie film. This film should be on every \"must see\" list.
