In writer-director Joan Micklin Silver’s (Hester Street) endearing 1979 adaptation of Ann Beattie’s celebrated 1976 novel, Chilly Scenes of Winter, Charles (John Heard, Cutter’s Way), a bored office worker, falls in love with Laura (Mary Beth Hurt, Lebanon, PA.) when she is separated from her husband, Ox (Mark Metcalf, Animal House).
When she later returns to the appropriately named fellow, Charles makes it his life’s work to get her back, aided, abetted, and occasionally hindered by a sensational cast of eccentric friends and relatives, played by the likes of Peter Riegert (Animal House), Kenneth McMillan (Dune), and the great Gloria Grahame (In a Lonely Place).
Special features on this Twilight Time edition of this comedy-drama (alright, we’ll call it a romantic comedy!) include the following:
-Isolated music track
-Audio commentary with writer/director Joan Micklin Silver and producer Amy Robinson
