Critic Reviews for Winter Solstice
Ultimately undercut by its fictional elements and its flat characters.
This movie deserves to be seen -- and learned from. It captures the moments in which each of us stares out across an emptiness, searching for a connection that will keep us from falling.
It's the kind of narrow-gauged drama that either will drive you crazy or absorb you in its low-key rhythms. Mostly, I went along for the ride.
It has everything an indie film could desire -- except for a compelling plot or dramatic tension.
In an impressive feature debut, director-screenwriter Josh Sternfeld takes an observant, nuanced look at human behavior.
Audience Reviews for Winter Solstice
Not very exciting, but a pretty accurate depiction of what a real persons life is like. And as such there was really no plot, or climax, or ending. Still somehow it wasn't boring, so they did something right.
A great film! Very touching story about a widower and his two sons, and the struggle to have to overcome to get over the death of a wife and mother.
Story about dealing with a loss in the family and the difficulties of parents understanding teens and vice versa. There is a certain slowness or lulling rhythm to the film
