A Winter Tan is a Canadian drama film, released in 1987. Based on the book Give Sorrow Words by Maryse Holder, the film stars Jackie Burroughs as Holder.

The screenplay was written by Burroughs and John Frizzell, and the film was directed and produced jointly by Burroughs, Frizzell, Louise Clark, John Walker and Aerlyn Weissman.


In this docudrama, Jackie Burroughs stars as Maryse Holder, the ill-fated feminist author who met an untimely death in Acapulco. Her behavior toward Mexican men was to regard them as subjects for the pursuit of sexual and romantic adventure. Her own pursuits of sex and booze and love lead to her death at the hands of one of her many macho partners.[1]



Burroughs won the Genie Award for Best Actress.
