Chilly Scenes of Winter 1979
Charles is a young man carrying a heavy load of problems and confusions. He's hopelessly in love with Laura, a woman who's recently separated from her husband and stepdaughter. He works as a "reports analyst" for the state of Utah, a boring and unfulfilling job. And his family is a teeter totter of excessive individuals: a crazy mother who repeatedly threatens or attempts suicide and a sister who's so straight that her spirit stands at right angles.
How does Charles cope? He uses laughter as a way of surviving. He and his friend Sam, a Ph.D. who clerks at a men's clothing store, are wiseacres par excellence. Perhaps that is what endears him to Laura. However, when he puts her on a pedestal, she flees the relationship. Charles builds a dollhouse to match her A-frame house and wonders why she is incapable of seeing that he loves her and has to be with her.
