Burbank, CA, Aug 1, 2008 – Experience a poignant tale of life, love and loss on September 16th when SNOW ANGELS arrives onto DVD from Warner Home Video. This captivating drama follows the intertwining lives of two couples and the difficulties that they must face and overcome.
Annie and Glenn (Kate Beckinsale and Sam Rockwell) are recently divorced and parents of a four-year-old daughter. They struggle to co-exist as Glenn's alcoholism and their estranged relationship make life difficult for the family. Arthur is a high school trombonist who meets the new girl in school and soon is thrust into the first romantic relationship of his young life. Concurrently, the relationship between Arthur's own parents continues to crumble before his very eyes. As tragedy befalls Annie and Glenn, the lives of these young couples intertwine in this gripping drama.
Director David Gordon Green (Undertow, All the Real Girls) helms this story of love and loss that stars Kate Beckinsale (The Aviator, Underworld series), Sam Rockwell (The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, Matchstick Men) and Michael Angarano (TV's Will and Grace, Sky High).
Snow Angels will be available on a single disc in widescreen and full screen versions, for a SRP of $28.98.
"A brave and magnificently performed period piece." -Jan Stuart, Newsday
A drama that interweaves the life of a teenager, with his old baby sitter, her estranged husband, and their daughter.
Arthur busses tables in a Chinese restaurant, plays trombone in the high school marching band, and has his eye on smart, funny, offbeat Lila - who definitely has her eye on him. But as Arthur takes tentative steps towards his first romantic relationship, the long time relationships of the adults around him teeter and crash, drawing Arthur into a vortex of events that will change his world forever.
From director/screenwriter David Gordon Green (Undertow), based on Stewart O'nan's powerful novel and empowered by the bone-real performances of Kate Beckinsale, Sam Rockwell and as Arthur, young Michael Angarano (The Forbidden Kingdom), SNOW ANGELS captures the power of first love. And second chances.
