Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Frozen River let me forget I was watching a movie, something that didn't happen often in 2008.
Fresh: Frozen River is bleak and uncompromising - and that's just how the Academy likes it.
Fresh: Frozen River is a taut, suspenseful thriller; a troubling of borders both cultural and national; and testament to the virtues of communion, empathy and compassion.
Fresh: Original, sad, suspenseful and involving: the kind of work that helps independent American cinema retain its good name.
The Mohawk Nation
this movie was filmed on my reservation,and Courtney Hunt didnt ask the trible councle to film the movie there. or give any credit to the Mohawk nation. and not all natives on the reservation make money smuggleing people over the river. This movie is up for an award i hope she gives credit if she wins.
This is the best movie that no one's ever heard of. I'm so glad Melissa Leo was nominated for a Best Actress Oscar and I think this movie was better than some that were nominated for Best Picture.
melissa leo was nominated for an oscar for her preformance in this film. Critics loved it, i loved it, you will love it
