Story


New York City is subsumed in arctic winds, dark nights, and white lights, its life unfolds, for it is an extraordinary hive of the imagination, the greatest house ever built, and nothing exists that can check its vitality. One night in winter, Peter Lake--orphan and master-mechanic, attempts to rob a fortress-like mansion on the Upper West Side.

Though he thinks the house is empty, the daughter of the house is home. Thus begins the love between Peter Lake, a middle-aged Irish burglar, and Beverly Penn, a young girl, who is dying.

Peter Lake, a simple, uneducated man, because of a love that, at first he does not fully understand, is driven to stop time and bring back the dead. His great struggle, in a city ever alight with its own energy and beseiged by unprecedented winters, is one of the most beautiful and extraordinary stories of American literature.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..some of Winter's Tale is just flat-out pretty enough to work..”
by Stephanie Zacharek [Village Voice]
“..it's a heavy-handed piece of quirky melodrama told with broad strokes and plenty of artificiality. There's just enough sensuality to pique the interest of said target audience, but nothing remotely moving for anyone that hasn't yet shed their virginity..”
by Cole Smithey [ColeSmithey.com]
“..sure, it's a movie aimed at a Valentine's Day audience, but this is like breaking your tooth while crunching down hard on a cinnamon heart..”
by Peter Howell [Toronto Star]
