"Winter Passing"



Hey all,

Nothing long today- just thought I'd recommend you a movie that's been passed under the radar for sometime now.

"Winter Passing" is directed by Adam Rapp, who has numerous plays and books published and has worked with "The L Word" before the film.

The film (I believe) is loosely based on the life of J.D. Salinger (their last names are even "Holden") and tells the story of a daughter (Zooey Deschanel) coming to visit her crazed-writer father (Ed Harris) to retrieve a set of love letter between him and her late mother to sell to a publisher. Her father now lives with a ex-christian rocker (Will Ferrell) who quit is band "'cause they went all ska" and an ex-student of his (Amelia Warner).

With great performances by all the actors - especially Zooey (whom you all know I love) and Will Ferrell (who's hilarious but still has soul) - hell Ed Harris and Amelia Warner's performances are great too. It has a great storyline and it's just overall a good movie.

Pick it up, or rent it or something. It's a shame this movie hasn't been more recognized.
