Cold November Review: A Quietly Powerful Coming of Age Tale

<img src="https://" /><p>The last ten years have given us some pretty great films about young women coming of age. Some have come in the forms of independent visions like <em>Pariah</em> and <a href=""><em>Lady Bird</em></a>, while others have descended from the John Hughes tradition of high school comedy (<em>Easy A</em>, <em>The Edge of Seventeen</em>). Others have told their stories though the lens of genre, resulting in such unique entries as <em>Winter's Bone</em> and <a href=""><em>Hanna</em></a>. This brings us to Karl Jacob's <strong><em>Cold November</em></strong>, a quietly powerful work that has shades of films like <em>Winter's Bone</em> and <em>Hanna</em>, yet tells its story in a way that's wholly its own. <em>Cold November</em> forgoes convention in order to explore a young woman's experience growing up in a way that packs a subtle, yet lasting punch.</p><p>Bijou Abas stars in <em>Cold November</em> as Florence (Flo for short), a twelve-year old girl growing up in small town Minnesota with her mother Amanda (Anna Klemp), aunt Mia (Heidi Fellner), and grandmother Georgia (Mary Kay Fortier-Spaulding). The women in their family have a longtime tradition of hunting deer for food, as a rite of passage that reflects their maturation and ongoing journey into adulthood. Having only just passed her Firearms Safety test, Flo is eager to join the rest of her family – including her uncle Craig (Jacob) – on their next hunt in the wilderness, now that she's old enough.</p> <strong>Click to continue reading <a href="">Cold November Review: A Quietly Powerful Coming of Age Tale</a></strong><br /><br /> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="">Cold November Review: A Quietly Powerful Coming of Age Tale</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="">ScreenRant</a>
