This summer I've seen a lot of movies on the big screen. THE DARK KNIGHT, MAMMA MIA, THE VISITOR, TELL NO ONE, to name a few. But I have to say FROZEN RIVER, an independent film, was the best one out of the bunch.
It's a crime film, noirish at times. The characters are amazing (when is the last time you've seen a worn-out, impoverished fiftysomething woman play the lead of a crime movie?) and the twists of the plot are magnificent. You can't predict anything in this movie. If it's playing in your neighborhood, go see it.
