"It’s a place that seems to have been designed to cause Seasonal Affective Disorder."....yes, that's the way to describe Whitehorse, Yukon where Big White was's a depressing place. I'm currently being Flieschmanin in Beaver Creek near the Alaska border. My wife loves it here.


I can't help it, I think Robin Williams and Alaska, and I think of the creepy murderer he played in Insomnia.


I actually worked on this film. It was a lot of fun. All the actors were very genuine and friendly. The movie itself is fun to watch, even if I hadn't worked on it. I believe they had a good time making it and it shows.

I have never, ever heard of this movie - not even the title.

But now it goes on the list. Thanks.

I went to Anchorage last August to visit my oldest childhood friend, who moved there 3 years ago with her husband and children. It's quite a radical transplanting from Long Island. She's not certain yet it's permanent. They say if you can make it through 5 winters, you'll be okay. I guess that's in relative terms.


"It’s a place that seems to have been designed to cause Seasonal Affective Disorder."....yes, that's the way to describe Whitehorse, Yukon where Big White was filmed.

I saw this movie in one of the few places that's actually further north than Whitehorse, in a town that's above the Arctic Circle. Talk about your SADD -- there were 2 hours of sunlight every day. Yet there were people there who claimed they wouldn't live anywhere else.

May I say how much I love Tim Blake Nelson?
