The Ice Storm

Twentieth Century Fox; rental pricing
Feature; R
Director: Ang Lee
Cast: Kevin Kline, Joan Allen, Sigourney Weaver and Christina Ricci

Incredible performances, especially Weaver, Allen and Ricci (all overlooked at Oscar time) anchor this chilling, touching film about surburban angst circa 1973. With its spectral cinematography and unshakable hold, this saga ranks among the year's best.
