Frozen River DVD release (trailer)

by PopMatters Staff

3 February 2009

 

We’re looking forward to the release of Frozen River on DVD February 10th. Melissa Leo’s performance was one of the finest acting turns of last year and got her an Oscar nomination for Best Actress. The film made our Top 30 coming in at #14. Matt Mazur describes it this way: “With an intellectual, pummeling veracity, writer-director Courtney Hunt executes a film that is sparse, powerful and assured. Finally, we have a feminist movie, made by a woman, starring women that is about real women’s issues. Yet, because of this, and because of Hollywood’s idiotic bias against films by female directors, Hunt is not getting the kind of awards circuit praise she and her first film truly deserve.”
