The film pick of the week is Frozen River. This was the movie that everyone championed and loved, and that poured over into a surprise Academy Award nomination for Melissa Leo for Best Actress. She might not have a shot at winning, but the nomination gave this little-seen film a shot at a wider audience. It’s in very limited play now but arrives on DVD on Feb 10th.

The film follows Melissa Leo’s charcter Ray Eddy, who is broke after her husband takes off with her down payment for her new trailer. She then turns to smuggling illegal immagrants across the US-Canadian border with the help of a Mohawk girl who lives on a reservation. This harrowing tale resonates even more since the economic meltdown, where many are forced to push ourselves over the limit just to survive.
