Frozen River HD

SKY MOVIES – Saturday 20 March, 8.30pm


Frozen River is a dramatic film which takes place in the days before Christmas near a little-known border crossing on the Mohawk reservation between New York State and Quebec. Here, the lure of fast money from smuggling presents a daily challenge to single mums who would otherwise be earning minimum wage. Two women- one white, one Mohawk, both single mothers faced with desperate circumstances- are drawn into the world of border smuggling across the frozen water of the St. Lawrence River. Melissa Leo (21 Grams) plays Ray, Misty Upham (Edge of America, Skins) plays Lila, and Academy Award® nominee Michael O’Keefe (The Great Santini) plays the New York State Trooper who ultimately brings the two to justice.
