Set in the Appalachians during the Depression, this drama follows the events that take place when Wayland Jackson (Kurt Russell) falls in love with Collie Wright (Kelly McGillis) and becomes involved in the family feud that is sparked by the existence of Collie's illegitimate son. ~ Iotis Erlewine, Rovi

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
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
