News   Adam Rapp Film "Winter Passing" To Be Released Feb. 17
 
"Winter Passing," a new film written and directed by Adam Rapp, starring husband-and-wife actors Amy Madigan and Ed Harris, will be released in theatres on the wintery date of Feb. 17, 2006.

The cast of the Rapp film will also include Zooey Deschanel, Amelia Warner and "Saturday Night Live" alum Will Ferrell. The Stratus-financed motion picture — "Winter Passing" — marks the fifth time that Madigan and Harris have co-starred in a feature film. Rapp's plays include Faster, Trueblinka and Stone Cold Dead.

In the plot, a "struggling twenty-something actress Reese Holden (Zooey Deschanel) has been promised $100,000 for publication of love letters written by her legendary, but reclusive father, novelist Don Holden (Ed Harris), to his equally revered late wife, also an acclaimed writer and Reese's mother. In search of these letters, Reese treks from New York City back home to Michigan, where she finds her father in flagrant disregard of his own health and living with two younger housemates: one, a practical former grad student, Shelly (Amelia Warner) and the other, a would-be musician, Corbit (Will Ferrell). Though no angel herself, Reese does not approve of this ad-hoc 'family.' Little by little, she comes to appreciate her unlikely new siblings, and as secrets are revealed, Reese comes to terms with her father, their shared past and hopeful future."

Producers of "Winter Passing" include Bob Yari, Mark Gordon, Laura Bickford, Jennifer Dana and David Koplan.
