Cameras roll on new Revolution Films & Rhombus Media production

Principal photography is underway on 'Snow Cake', a Canada-UK co-production produced by Niv Fichman and Jessica Daniel from Rhombus Media and Gina Carter and Andrew Eaton from Revolution Films.
The film began shooting in Wawa, Ontario April 10 and relocates to Toronto at the end of April, wrapping on May 19. The script is by first-time UK screenwriter Angela Pell and stars Alan Rickman, Sigourney Weaver and Carrie-Anne Moss.
Snow Cake is a film about friendship, snow, acceptance, obsessive cleaning, a dog called Marilyn, and about finding the warmest of friendships in the coldest of places.
Tight-lipped Englishman Alex (Alan Rickman) arrives in Northern Ontario and is bullied by lovable 19-year-old hitchhiker Vivienne into giving her a ride. When the car is hit by a truck on the outskirts of her hometown, Vivienne dies instantly. Alex finds himself, for the second time in his life, grieving for someone he never knew.
Shocked and stranded in snowbound Wawa, he is drawn to seek out Vivienne's mother and comes face to face with Linda (Sigourney Weaver).
"It's such a heart-warming script and a truly inspired cast," said Fichman, Oscar-winning producer of 'The Red Violin', starring Samuel L. Jackson. "Snow Cake is an exquisitely intimate story exploring some fairly explosive themes - the relationships between damaged and disparate individuals, the meaning of grief and the nature of imperfect love."
Andrew Eaton, who produced Marc Evans' 'Resurrection Man', added: "Angela sent me her debut script a year ago and I knew at once she had created something very special. It is a testament to the quality of her writing that we have managed to bring together such a brilliantly talented group of people. It is especially great to be working with Marc again."
