Winter Solstice is an intense drama and all the action is internal. LaPaglia is such a fine actor and every nuance of his bottled up Jim comes through, as he struggles to not only be a good father, but to find a direction in his own life.
This is a riveting film that requires more than popcorn \u2013maybe a box of tissues.\nRachel McAdams part as Clare is electrifyingly riveting. Rachel radiates and glows from within this part of Clare with conviction and belief. Rachel\u2019s eyes have luminosity to them throughout the film, even in darker situations. Words seem inadequate to describe this portrayal. It is so absorbing and completely draws one\u2019s attention into the film, that one is \u2018transported\u2019 on set, with Henry and Clare. Especially the last scene, I found myself urging Clare on to run faster, and Rachel McAdams does run the race of her life! With Eric Bana (beautiful accent), as Henry, this couple are believable and convincing. The whole cast of actors is well chosen especially the children.\nThoroughly satisfying with extra features included and interviews with the lead actors, help one understand this \u2018time travel\u2019 phenomena.
