Loved it so realistic to the struggles of single mom's in remote rural areas. What woman will do for a better life for their children.

loved it! Finally a film that says civil law does not necessarilyapproximate moral law . Two moral women struggle to make their lives and their childrens lives with a degree ofcivil law and moral law meet head on...a superb film..as two women struggle to make their lives and their childrens lives minimally acceptable.. they cross the border of legality but never the limits of morality.

Made with uncommon skill and assurance, the film never succumbs to rank sentimentality, but it manages to get at the nuances of human relationships. Full Review
A Sundance hit that is both absorbing and bleak, Frozen River is anchored by powerful performances, believable scenarios and excellent writing. Full Review
Wall Street Journal
This is a debut feature, though you'd never know it from the filmmaker's commandingly confident style, or from the heartbreaking beauty -- heartbreaking, then heartmending -- of Melissa Leo's performance as a poor single mother who's living her whole life on thin ice. Full Review

As the summer heats up, let Frozen River wash over you; let its bracing drama and the intensity of its acting restore your spirits as well as your faith in American independent film. Full Review

If we're going to be honest, we need to look inside and ask ourselves: Do we really want to see a listless movie about a woman whose dream is to move into a double-wide trailer? Full Review
