Chaske Spencer & Julia Jones in ‘Winter in the Blood’
Chaske Spencer recently stopped by at Montana Public Radio, to talk about his new film ‘Winter in the Blood’, based on the late James Welch’s novel, of the same name. Julia Jones, also stars alongside Chaske in this new film.
Virgil First Raise wakes with a shiner and a hangover in a roadside ditch on the stark but beautiful plains of Montana. As he rises to face the day he sees a vision of his father lying dead at his feet. Impossible– his father froze to death in a snowdrift years earlier. Virgil returns home to find that his wife, Agnes, has left him. Worse, she’s taken his electric razor and his beloved rifle. Virgil sets out to find her– beginning a hi-line odyssey of inebriated encounters, sexual skirmishes, and improbable cloak-and-dagger intrigues with the mysterious ‘Airplane Man’. Virgil’s quest also brings him face-to-face with childhood memories and visions of his beloved, lost brother Mose– some glorious, some tragic. Only when Virgil seeks the counsel of an old, blind man named Yellow Calf, does he grasp the truth of his origins and begin to thaw the ice in his veins.
The film was played at the Los Angeles Film Festival on 14th June 2013, but there is no official release date for Winter in the Blood, in the UK, as of yet. We think Chaske looks brilliant and we hope to see the film soon!
