Winter Solstice | Chicago Reader

Winter Solstice

Developed at the Sundance Institute by writer-director Josh Sternfeld, this beautifully unemphatic small-town drama stars Anthony LaPaglia as a New Jersey landscape architect trying to deal with his two teenage sons, one of them (Mark Webber) screwing up in school and the other (Aaron Stanford) plotting his escape to a dead-end job in Florida. Allison Janney is a middle-aged woman at loose ends who's house-sitting down the street and seems to like the father. The mother's absence isn't explained until the movie's almost over, a transparent narrative device that limits the drama but also allows the conflicts among the three men to play out in agreeably natural fashion. R, 90 min.
