One of these days, maybe Kurt Russell and Kelly McGillis will look back at Winter People and laugh.

The film is shot in 'Scope, but the effort is essentially wasted by dull center framing that makes the format superfluous.

An overearnest story about feudin' mountain families that's good for little more than a few hoots at its own expense.

Winter People is the kind of movie where you sit there asking yourself questions that apparently never occurred to the filmmakers.

Touching, and excellently performed

A plodding period drama with its fair share of ludicrous plot twists.
