Aro Favourite Affliction


USA 1997, 109 minutes
Dir. Paul Schrader
Rating: [R16]
Genres: Drama / Independent

Topics: Mid-life.


Aroview: A murder-mystery obscured in a snowbound landscape of wrecked relationships and alcoholic longings, this gets right under the skin of its afflicted characters.

James Coburn won an Oscar for supporting, but Nick Nolte deserves as much kudos in a (career best) role of rare conviction. Sissy Spacek and Willem Defoe also add layers of complexity and soul to the gripping, dark-hearted journey, taken from a novel by Russell Banks (THE SWEET HEREAFTER).
