Frozen River (2008)

A desperate woman resorts to smuggling illegal immigrants to support her family.  This is a grim tale with a hint of redemption and hope.  Melissa Leo is raw and strong.  Misty Upham is perfect as her Native American smuggling partner.  The beauty of this movie is the way these two souls come together, each with their own burdens to bear.  Very minimalistic and hard-hitting movie.  You can feel everything closing around this main character and the harsh winter chill.  Good solid stuff.
