Our review of The Snowman starring Michael Fassbender, Rebecca Ferguson and Charlotte Gainsbourg. Synopsis: For Detective Harry Hole, the death of a young woman during the first snowfall of winter feels like anything but a routine homicide. His investigation leads him to “The Snowman Killer,” an elusive sociopath who continuously taunts Hole with cat-and-mouse games. As the vicious murders continue, Harry teams up with a brilliant recruit to try and lure the madman out of the shadows before he can strike again.
We also talk with Robert Nolan, the star of Sixty Minutes to Midnight, the new indie action film that played Toronto After Dark just last week. He’ll be on to talk about what went into making the film and share some “behind the scenes” stories. Sixty Minutes to Midnight focuses on a construction worker and former soldier Jack Darcy, a man of few friends who decides to spend New Year’s Eve 1999 by himself at his secluded home in Dallas. Little does he know that he’s been chosen to be the next contestant on a deadly game show that hunts and kills its players. Jack has 1 hour to stay alive. If he does, he receives One Million Dollars. But Jack is a skilled individual with more than a few tricks up his sleeve. For more info on Sixty Minutes to Midnight, check out our review of the film.
