  • Summary: In the harsh, wintry woods of rural Quebec, Bruce (Thomas Haden Church), a down-on-his-luck snowplow operator, accidentally kills a man during a drunken night joyride. Stricken with panic, he hides the body and takes to the deep wilderness in hopes of outrunning both the authorities and his own conscience. But as both begin to close in, Bruce falls apart mentally and morally and mysteries unravel to reveal who he was before the accident, the truth behind his victim, and the circumstances that brought them together in a single moment.

    Whitewash is a small but sparkling gem on ice.

    The film benefits greatly from this bait-and-switch narrative design, as Hoss-Desmarais dials down or otherwise forgoes exposition, backstory, and character development in favor of an ambiguous, almost ethereal dramaturgical approach.

    Thomas Haden Church hits the exact balance of desperation and resignation demanded by the peculiar story.

    A more dynamic character or script would have gone a long way to help audiences find their way through this storm.

    Church’s indelible character study can only carry this wan, skeletal picture so far.
