The new Montana-made film "Winter in the Blood" received a warm reception at its recent premiere at the Los Angeles film festival, and will have its Montana premiere this Saturday evening in Missoula. The film is based on the acclaimed novel by the late Montana author James Welch - who was a family friend of the film's directors, brothers Alex and Andrew Smith.
