Countdown to Christmas: Top 30 Christmas Films(or Specials)

                                     #21-Frozen River

Mellisa Leo is stellar in her performance of Ray a single mother trying to make ends meet at a dead end dollar store job.
Christmas is fast approaching and she wants to buy a new house for her family for the holidays, but with things already looking gloomy for gifts she takes a job she might soon regret.

Ray soon follows and confronts a Mohawk woman that is driving her husbands car, upon confronting her she finds out this woman(Lila Littlewolf) is smuggling illegal immigrants across the Frozen River between New York State and Quebec.
They do their first run together but Lila robs Ray of her share of the money.
Not to be outdone Ray returns the next day to Lila's place and forces her to give her the money back.
The two run into problems of their own together and are caught at one point and the ending will surprise you
This was my favorite film from 2009.
Thanks for reading this
