Robin Williams and Holly Hunter head up an all-star cast in this Alaska-set black comedy, which sees a penniless travel agent faking his missing brother’s death for the insurance money. Life isn’t easy for travel agent Paul Barnell (Williams, ONE HOUR PHOTO) who’s stuck in a dead-end job, can barely make ends meet and whose wife Margaret (Hunter, THIRTEEN) is slightly deranged. Salvation comes in the form of a frozen corpse, which he finds by accident in a rubbish tip behind his office. Suddenly, Paul has an epiphany: if he can convince the authorities that the stiff is that of his missing brother Raymond (Woody Harrelson (NATURAL BORN KILLERS), he could cash in on his substantial life insurance policy. But Paul doesn’t count on being pursued by two would-be gangsters, a determined insurance investigator or an irate brother who’s very much still alive! THE BIG WHITE--with its unsettling snowy backdrop--will likely draw comparisons to comedy-crime caper FARGO. And although the humour here is decidedly less subtle in its approach, it’s no less effective.
