Family dramas are a dime a dozen in the low-budget independent film world. But family dramas combined with the conventions of a film noir ? set in present-day Oregon, no less ? are few and far between. That's the unusual mix of "Cold Weather," a microbudget feature (it cost about $100,000 to produce) from 29-year-old writer-director Aaron Katz.

Dodge is recalling nearly 13,000 of its compact Dart sedan to correct a problem with stalling in cold weather. The recall affects only Dart sedans that have the 1.4-liter turbocharged engine and the six-speed dual-clutch transmission, according to the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration. The agency says the car's engine can stall at temperatures below 20 degrees, leading to the possibility of a crash. No accidents or injuries have been reported as a result of this defect, said company spokesman Eric Mayne.

A long spell of freezing weather gripping Europe has taken the lives of dozens of homeless people, while blizzards have disrupted travel and balmy resorts have suffered freak snowfalls. Several dozen people trapped in their vehicles by avalanches in a tunnel in southern Russia were finally freed, but as many as 300 people were still feared to be inside the tunnel as snow continued to fall. Sections of the Danube River in Central Europe were frozen over, as were major canals in northern Germany.
