Winner of the PEN/Faulkner Award American Booksellers Association Book of the Year Award San Piedro Island, north of Puget Sound, is a place so isolated that no one who lives there can afford to make enemies. But in 1954 a local fisherman is found suspiciously drowned, and a Japanese American named Kabuo Miyamoto is charged with his murder. In the course of the ensuing trial, it becomes clear that what is at stake is more than a man's guilt. For on San Pedro, memory grows as thickly as cedar trees and the fields of ripe strawberries--memories of a charmed love affair between a white boy and the Japanese girl who grew up to become Kabuo's wife; memories of land desired, paid for, and lost. Above all, San Piedro is haunted by the memory of what happened to its Japanese residents during World War II, when an entire community was sent into exile while its neighbors watched. Gripping, tragic, and densely atmospheric, Snow Falling on Cedars is a masterpiece of suspense-- one that leaves us shaken and changed. Haunting. A whodunit complete with courtroom maneuvering and surprising turns of evidence and at the same time a mystery, something altogether richer and deeper

Trama: Un giorno, il ricco fotografo Bobby Garfield scopre che Sully-John, suo vecchio amico di infanzia, è morto. Al funerale dell'amico i ricordi dell'estate dei suoi undici anni vengono impetuosamente a galla: il dolore non ancora sopito per la morte del padre, il difficile rapporto con una madre sempre al verde, l'amicizia con Sully, la prima cotta per Carol e, soprattutto, l'incontro con uno strano vicino di casa, Ted Brautigan, un uomo anziano, schivo, apparentemente scorbutico. Nel lungo flash back che occuperà gran parte del film, viene descritta la vita del piccolo Bobby e in particolare il rapporto che il bambino instaura con Ted. L'uomo, che è un medium capace di leggere nel pensiero e ricercato - per questo motivo - dall'FBI, affascina immediatamente l'undicenne. Al di là dei suoi poteri (che cercherà di non utilizzare mai), Ted diventa ben presto il punto di riferimento di Bobby, aiutandolo a trovare il coraggio per dare il primo bacio a Carol, per appassionarsi di letteratura, per difendersi dai ragazzi più grandi. Purtroppo, però, il soggiorno del medium è destinato a durare poco: gli agenti segreti sono sulle sue tracce. In un primo tempo Bobby fa finta di non accorgersene (per non avvertire l'amico e causarne, in tal modo la fuga), poi - compreso il grave pericolo che Ted corre - cerca di salvarlo dall'arresto, andando a ritirare per lui una grossa somma vinta e scommettendo su un incontro di pugilato. Troppo tardi: Ted viene catturato e a Bobby non rimane che regalare i soldi a sua madre. Anche se la donna finalmente potrà risolvere i propri problemi economici, la persona che più si è arricchita da quell'esperienza è stata senz'altro Bobby

"From the award-winning director of Shine, Scott Hicks, comes this seminal Australian road movie tracing one man's search for speed and freedom. Ron (Jon Blake - Anzacs, The Lighthorsemen) is an angry young man with few work prospects having been sacked from his latest factory job. Rebelling against a society that offers him little hope, he lapses into fantasies of driving the highway in a sports car with a beautiful girl, and decides finally to steal the Porsche of his dreams. Ron escapes onto the open road and along the way meets the errant Sally (Jad Capelja - Puberty Blues), who wants to retrieve her baby sent to live with foster parents. Chased by the law and their own demons, both risk all in a last attempt to fulfill their dreams." -- container
