Proves timely and persuasive: as the weather becomes colder, so a thaw develops between Basil and Nick's more attractive everyman.

Tolstoy's acutely felt story yields a prosaic film tragedy that may connect with festival audiences but few else.

June 25, 2013 | Rating: 5 | Full Review…

The film unfurls through a series of brilliantly staged and intensely uncomfortable interactions between the supercilious Basil and the grating Nick.

January 28, 2013 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It's a nuanced story, cleverly combining claustrophobia and agoraphobia, and the moving climax takes on a sonorous spiritual tone of revelation and redemption.

Huston, as ever, does the devil's work to perfection, but, with no one to like - let alone root for - this soon becomes a very long and tiresome slog indeed.

As small-scale as Boxing Day is, it sustains an unusual atmosphere and an emotional charge of which Tolstoy might have approved - and both performances are memorably etched into it.
