Twelve year old Simon makes his small, and sometimes not so small, fortune by looting ski equipments and nipping food from the nearby ski resort. What else can he do, other than seeing Louise get picked up by some boyfriend, almost every other day? But of course, he can’t do that forever, can he? They can’t live like that forever. Winter is going to be over soon. And hey, Gillian Anderson is in this movie!
My Rating: 7/10
