Synopsis

Academy Award® nominee Greg Kinnear*, Academy Award® winner Alan Arkin**, and Billy Crudup lead a celebrated cast in the most critically acclaimed caper of the year. “The con is on and nothing is what it seems in this excellent comic noir,” raves Marie Claire.

Mickey Prohaska (Kinnear) is a small-time insurance agent looking for one big score to get him out of frigid Wisconsin. But Mickey’s clever con spirals out of control when an unstable locksmith (Crudup) turns the tables and raises the stakes higher than he ever imagined. This wickedly witty thriller features “a crime twist worthy of Hitchcock and dialogue worthy of the Coen Brothers” (Screen Daily).

Reviews

Roger Moore McClatchy-Tribune News Service | March 23, 2012

An amusingly nerve-wracking trek into the snow and out onto the ice with those funny folks in the land of "you betcha."

Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times | February 23, 2012

There's nothing like the macabre to bring intrigue to an ordinary life, and nothing like the logistics of body disposal to challenge an insurance salesman.

Kyle Smith New York Post | February 17, 2012

Kinnear and director Jill Sprecher make you feel Mickey's squirming desperation, even if the ending feels like a cop-out.

Joe Neumaier New York Daily News | February 17, 2012

With a wink, a nudge and a heaping portion of Midwestern charm, "Thin Ice" reels us in.

Betsy Sharkey Los Angeles Times | February 16, 2012

There is some sinister fun to be had in watching Kinnear skating toward disaster on ice that is very thin indeed.

Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer | February 16, 2012

Thin Ice is deeper than it first appears.

John Anderson Wall Street Journal | February 16, 2012

It is Mr. Kinnear's slippery charm that keeps "Thin Ice" from sinking into the frosty Wisconsin slush toward which it seems to be heading from the start.
