First Winter
During a winter of record-breaking cold, a blackout of apocalyptic proportions strands a group of Brooklynites in a remote country farmhouse. At first, it's a party: drugs, sex, and yoga. But as the days go on and the food supply dwindles, they turn against one another, and gradually are forced into a confrontation with their mortality. (c) Official Site

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It haunted me the first time I saw it and even more so the second time."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"Dickinson's anti-dramatic methodology proves ill-suited to the task of generating narrative interest."
‑ Andrew Schenker, Village Voice
"The film's interests are mainly relegated to wallowing in the frigid-starvation-suffering of its protagonists."
‑ Nick Schager, Slant Magazine
