Frozen River

This humble, soft-spoken character-study-cum-crime-drama introduces us to two women, different on the surface, but united by something deeper. Ray (Melissa Leo) is a woman living in a hardscrabble New York/Canadian border town and struggling to raise two sons after her gambling-addicted hubby splits town. Lila (Misty Upham) is also a single mother, running illegal aliens back and forth across the unwatched border of a nearby Native American reservation. Brought together by the monetary rewards of this crime, these two women bond in plaintive and quietly engrossing way. 97 minutes R.
