Story


Mickey Prohaska (Greg Kinnear) is a small-time insurance agent looking for a way to jump-start his business, reunite with his estranged wife (Lea 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 (Alan 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 (Billy Crudup) with a volatile temper dramatically ups the stakes, trapping him in a madcap spiral of danger, deceit and double-crossing. Blending dark comedy and delirious Midwestern noir, "Thin Ice" reaches a breaking point that no one -- least of all Mickey Prohaska -- could ever see coming.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..seems to have been assembled in a spirit of anxious caution, with the hope of making something as derivative and second-rate as possible..”
by A.O. Scott [New York Times]
“..its humor falls just shy of quirky, and its menace feels mild..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]
“..with a wink, a nudge and a heaping portion of Midwestern charm, "Thin Ice" reels us in..”
by Joe Neumaier [New York Daily News]
