Death of a Golden Boy Ripples Through a Family
(New York Times
review by Stephen Holden)
Like "Ordinary People," "A Year Ago in Winter," adapted by Ms. Link from "Aftermath," a novel by the American author Scott Campbell, is a study of the fallout from unconscious hubris within a family for which failure is not an option....  You could describe this movie by Ms. Link, whose film "Nowhere in Africa" won a 2002 Oscar for best foreign-language film, as a precisely calibrated and persuasively acted mood piece that doesn't throw you a reassuring lollipop.  Read the whole review here.
