Thin Ice, a wonderful sleeper that has been getting some great press since Sundance, is available on Blu-Ray, and I have three copies to give away.
With reviews raving not only about the twisting, wicked plot, but also the acting efforts of stars Greg Kinnear, Alan Arkin, and Billy Crudup, this is a diabolical treat for fans of comedy, Fargo-esque capers, and just simple wildly entertaining rides.
Don’t let this one slip past you, and enter below to win a copy!
Hailed as “a crime twist worthy of Hitchcock and dialogue worthy of the Coen Brothers” (Screen Daily), Thin Ice is available now on Blu-ray and DVD from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Starring Oscar®-nominee Greg Kinnear (As Good AS It Gets, Little Miss Sunshine), Academy Award winner® Alan Arkin (Little Miss Sunshine), Billy Crudup (Almost Famous, Jesus’ Son) and Lea Thompson (Back To The Future), this intriguing caper premiered to critical praise at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year.
Mickey Prohaska (Kinnear) is a small-time insurance agent looking for a way to jump-start his business, reunite with his estranged wife (Thompson) and escape the frigid Wisconsin weather. This self-proclaimed master of spin believes that salesmanship is about selling a story — all he needs is a sucker willing to buy it. He hits pay dirt with a lonely retired farmer (Arkin) who is sitting on something much bigger than an insurance commission. But Mickey’s attempt to con the old man spins out of control when a nosy, unstable locksmith (Crudup) with a volatile temper dramatically ups the stakes, trapping him in a spiral of danger, deceit and double-crossing.
The Blu-ray features both the theatrical and Director’s cuts of the film.
