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.
melissa leo was nominated for an oscar for her preformance in this film. Critics loved it, i loved it, you will love it
The best of 2008!
This movie did not get enough credit! It is a fantastic thriller and every actor performs to their extent. I really recommend this movie.
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.
