Apr 28, 2017 · Winter People is the kind of movie where you sit there asking yourself questions that apparently never occurred to the filmmakers.
Starring Kurt Russell (Breakdown) and Kelly McGillis (Top Gun) as forbidden lovers willing to risk everything to be together, Winter People is an entrancing (The Hollywood Reporter) film that shows how beautiful and powerful love can be in the face of devastating odds.
Winter People is a 1989 romantic drama film directed by Ted Kotcheff and starring Kurt Russell and Kelly McGillis. The film is based on the novel by John Ehle. Wayland Jackson, a widower with a young daughter, moves to a small, impoverished mountain village in North Carolina, circa 1934. They are taken in by Collie Wright, a single mother, and she and Wayland soon fall in love.
"Winter People" is based on a novel by John Ehle, but it's almost as if the novel was chosen because it provided an outline for a movie that would try to duplicate the unique success of "Witness." Consider: "Winter People" stars McGillis as a woman who lives by herself in an isolated community of mountain people. It's early in the 1930s.
