Broke after her husband takes off with the down payment for their new doublewide, Ray reluctantly teams up with Lila, a smuggler, and the two begin making runs across the frozen St. Lawrence River carrying illegal Chinese and Pakistani immigrants in the trunk of Ray's Dodge Spirit.
Drama - This is a talky, dark indie drama aimed at adult moviegoers,
particularly women. This is a film for those with a taste for films
outside the glossy mainstream.
Roger EbertFull Review Excellent Sometimes two performances come along that are so perfectly matched that no overt signals are needed to show how the characters feel about each other. That's what happens between Melissa Leo and Misty Upham in 'Frozen River,'...
USA TodayFull Review Very Good Frozen River is a story about dire circumstances and family bonds that relies heavily on believable characters. The supporting performances are strong and authentic, but Leo stands out for her remarkably honest and compelling portrayal.
