Screenwriter Courtney Hunt and actor, Melissa Leo
both garnered Oscar nominations for this gripping
drama about two desperate mothers that form an unlikely
friendship. Academy Award Winner, Melissa Leo
(The Fighter) plays Ray Eddy, a mother of two who
feeds her two boys Tang and popcorn while her addicted
gambler husband runs off with the down payment on their new double
wide. The late Misty Upham plays Lila Littlewolf, a widowed Mohawk woman
whose mother-in-law has absconded with her child. In desperation, Lila
turns to smuggling illegal immigrants across the Canadian border via the
frozen St. Lawrence River through Mohawk territory. When Ray Eddy shows
up looking for her husband’s abandoned car the two women meet face to
face and begin a journey that ends in a dangerous last ditch effort to save
what little is left of their bereft lives. An excellent film worth watching twice.
Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival.
