Frozen River

Rating = A-

I disagree with the real reviewer who says the movie lacks dramatic interest, has amateurish acting, and tries to appear sincere which actually being insincere. I found the story interesting, the acting fine (the actress playing the native American talks in the dull way Marilyn on “Northern Exposure” talked, and I can believe that is a realistic speech pattern), and the problems and solutions believable. Sure, the characters are working on mundane problems, like having a decent place to live where the pipes don't freeze, and earning enough money to buy food, and getting back a baby that was taken away from the mother at birth; but these are the real-life problems of lots of the people in the country and I empathized with them.
