In keeping the focus away from plot, rather concentrating on the personalities of his characters, director Aaron Katz takes a huge risk. However, through strong and quietly hilarious writing, deliberate direction and impeccable production, he succeeds beyond all expectations. So rarely does a director give the justification needed to recommend a film as wholeheartedly as I do Cold Weather.
The San Francisco International Film Festival takes place this year from April 22 to May 6.
