Snow Falling on Cedars (1999)


Director: Scott Hicks
Stars: Ethan Hawke, Max von Sydow, Youki Kudoh

A Japanese-American fisherman may have killed his neighbor Carl at sea. In the 1950’s, race figures in the trial. So does reporter Ishmael.

Yep, this was the movie mentioned in “Horrible Bosses”, the scene where Jamie Foxx confesses about the real reason why he was imprisoned –because he was caught videotaping this certain movie. I thought it must be good so I looked for it and instantly downloaded it when I learned it stars Ethan Hawke. Indeed, it’s a great film.
