Winter Sleep

Winter Sleep

An ex-actor lives the life of a manor lord in a mountain village, sharing his worldly insights through a pompous column in the local newspaper. As  a local property owner his morality is tested against the poor struggling around him, and as his moral sheen wears thin so does his dependent young wife and sister weary of him.  “In fits and starts, this is a stunning picture. At its best, Winter Sleep shows Ceylan to be as psychologically rigorous, in his way, as Ingmar Bergman before him.” The Guardian. Palme d’Or winner.
