Snow Falling on Cedars

Based on the novel by David Guterson, set in a Pacific Northwest winter, 1950. A courtroom thriller, love story and exploration of the human spirit.

In beautifully-shot seaside surroundings, Snow Falling on Cedars remembers the times of the American concentration camps where Japanese-born or descended people were kept. The story intertwines young love, a classic legal fight for justice, the harsh life on the sea, and love across cultural barriers.

Gently told and atmospheric.
