After her husband deserts her, working-class mother Ray Eddy is in great need of money to find a home. Lured by the possibility of easy cash, Ray joins Lila, a widowed Mohawk who earns a living by smuggling immigrants from Canada to the U.S. across the St. Lawrence.

MUBI's take

With over two decades as a supporting character actor behind her, the brilliant Melissa Leo took the lead in this reservation thriller, earning her first Oscar nod. An impressive debut that hums with tension, Courtney Hunt’s Frozen River is an authentic, desolate look at life on the poverty line.
