Movie Info

Michael Rowe (Leap Year) wrote and directed this portrait of a Quebec couple trapped in an unhappy marriage. David (Paul Doucet), a fortysomething recovering alcoholic, works at a nursing home to support his family, but his wife, a Russian immigrant named Maya (Suzanne Clement), belittles his contributions and only seems interested in TV shows and video games.

July 29, 2016 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Early Winter displays one of the most sobering, and realistic portrayals of relationships on screen in recent memory.

April 4, 2020 | Full Review…

August 30, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Locked-off cameras that refuse to direct the audience's attention shape a film where the difference between diffidence and deceit could be non-existent ... [Michael] Rowe reveals how relationships, however solid, are prey to their own intractability.
