I watched this movie because of Emma Thompson. Her mother was the lead in the movie but I hadn’t realized how talented she was. It was based on a play, and and directed by Alan Rickman. The acting was superb.
I can’t quite remember the plot. People are unhappy and very sensitive. And it’s cold. The Winter Guest is death.
To be honest, I disliked this movie. Watching this was like listening to a person, for whom you have a great deal of respect, who is telling a joke that they have forgotten pieces of; and so they repeat the pieces they remember while you really want to go home and watch “MXC.”
