Naomi Watts & Billy Howle in Survival Thriller 'Infinite Storm' Trailer
"Mountains always listen… and never talk back." Bleecker Street has debuted a trailer for Infinite Storm, the true story of a woman who found a man lost in the snow on a mountain. Based on the beloved article "High Places: Footprints in the Snow Lead to an Emotional Rescue" by Ty Gagne, originally published in Reader's Digest. An experienced hiker attempts to save a stranger during a blizzard on Mount Washington. Naomi Watts stars as Pam Bales, who goes out for a hike on a day where a storm hits but before she comes back she finds a man and takes it upon herself to get them both down the mountain before nightfall arrives and they succumb to the storm. In addition to Watts, the cast includes Billy Howle, Denis O'Hare, and Parker Sawyers. This isn't really a mountain climbing film, it's a tale of perseverance and determination, not only about Pam out in this storm - it's also about the will to live and how powerful compassion can be.
