Rating:
PG
The Snow Walker is a romantic adventure drama inspired by a short story of Farley Mowat. It is a tale of survival in the harsh wilderness of Canada's Northwest Territories. The film, set in the early 1950s, begins with a plane flight; Charlie Halliday (Barry Pepper) is a bush pilot flying Kanaalaq (Annabella Piugattuk), an Inuit woman who has fallen ill, because she needs transportation over the Arctic tundra. Unfortunately, their plane crashes and they lose all contact with the outside world. Charlie tries to find help because Kanaalaq is too sick to leave the crash site, but he eventually becomes lost and injured. As Kanaalaq slowly regains her health, she manages to track Charlie down and nurse him back to health. During this period they struggle to communicate with each other, and Kanaalaq manages to teach Charlie the wilderness skills necessary to survive in the tundra. Eventually they make it back to their crash site, and from there set out to find a way back to civilization. Throughout the movie Charlie has flashbacks of his time as a World War II fighter pilot, and there are also cut scenes of other characters, including his co-worker, Pierce (Jon Gries), and his boss, Walter Shepard (James Cromwell), speculating on the pair's situation.moreless
