Synopsis:

The first of David Gordon Green’s films set north of the Mason Dixon, SNOW ANGELS juxtaposes three couples in adjacent stages of life who are linked by powerful relationships. Arthur (Michael Angarano) is in high school, plays in the marching band and is pursued romantically by pretty/nerdy Lila (Olivia Thirlby). Annie (Kate Beckinsale) used to baby-sit Arthur. Today they work in the same Chinese restaurant where anyone can see how much they care about each other, even as their lives are pulling them in much different directions. As Lila’s affection for Arthur grows, so does the ardor with which she tries to express it. At the same time, Arthur must deal with the fact that his parents (Griffin Dunne and Jeannetta Arnette) are splitting up. Meanwhile, Annie’s first marriage to Glenn (Sam Rockwell) has ended. Glenn used to drink but has since found Jesus Christ. Glenn lives with his parents as he tries to rebuild his life by getting a job selling carpet. He also tries to re-connect with Annie as he shows up to visit their very young daughter. A film for grown-ups, SNOW ANGELS is about a precise moment on a cold winter morning when Arthur’s past collides with his future, and nothing will ever be the same.
