Winter's End | Chicago Reader

Winter's End

A young man who's come to retrieve his car after an outdoor music concert is snatched by an embittered farmer who shackles him inside his barn without so much as an explanation. Irish writer-director Patrick Kenny ratchets up the suspense in this 2005 first feature, prudently concealing the farmer's motive from both the hero and the viewer. But the terror begins to dissipate once the farmer reveals his demented scheme, and several plot inconsistencies force Kenny to double back for explication, which compromises the narrative momentum. Michael Crowley, in his debut performance, is effectively creepy as the farmer. With Adam Goodwin and Jillian Bradbury. 98 min.
