Nominated for two Academy Awards, winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival and described by Quentin Tarantino as "the most exciting thriller I've seen this year", FROZEN RIVER has been acclaimed as one of the best American debuts this decade.
Ray Eddy (Melissa Leo, 21 GRAMS) finds herself at wits end after her gambler husband disappears with the down payment on their new home. When an offer to transport cargo across the Canadian border presents the opportunity to make some easy money, Ray has little idea that her actions will place her life in danger and threaten her family's future.
Featuring a stunning central performance by Melissa Leo, writer/director Courtney Hunt's film is a riveting thriller that raises questions about the borders we construct, between countries, communities and each other.
