Movie Info

In the harsh, wintry woods of rural Quebec, Bruce (Academy Award (R)-nominee Thomas Haden Church), a down-on-his-luck snowplow operator, accidentally kills a man during a drunken night joyride. Stricken with panic, he hides the body and takes to the deep wilderness in hopes of outrunning both the authorities and his own conscience. But as both begin to close in, Bruce falls apart mentally and morally and mysteries unravel to reveal who he was before the accident, the truth behind his victim, and the circumstances that brought them together in a single moment. A darkly comic noir in the vein of the Coen Brothers, Emanuel Hoss-Desmarais's WHITEWASH is a gripping exploration of a well-meaning Everyman at the end of his rope.(c) Oscope

Largely because of a pitch-perfect final line and a Haden Church performance that brings a dose of needed compassion, Whitewash manages to keep its footing.

The viewer is left in a snowblind limbo that makes it awfully difficult to stay engaged.

An airtight demonstration of the maxim that no good deed ever goes unpunished.

Thomas Haden Church bridges the credibility gap in snowed-in fugitive tale.

Whitewash is a small but sparkling gem on ice.

Despite Church's solid performance, Whitewash feels so leaden in its gravity, it borders on dull.
