Set against a background of deceit and wife-swapping in the 1970's, The Ice Storm is an extraordinary tale of sexual jealousy. Ben Hood (Kevin Kline - In & Out) is having an affair with his neighbour Janey (Sigourney Weaver - Alien Trilogy). His wife (Joan Allen - Face/Off) is fast losing patience with his clumsy lies. Meanwhile his daughter Wendy (Christina Ricci - Casper), is finding new `games' to play with boys next door and son Paul has escaped to the city to try and seduce an alluring rich girl. As night falls and the members of the family embark on their separate sexual odysseys, an ice storm hits the East Coast, the worst in 30 years. The events of that night, both comic and tragic, force the Hood family to come face to face with the harsh realities that exist in their lives... A film which has earned widespread critical acclaim, The Ice Storm is emotional, thought-provoking and delivers such powerful performances it is simply a must-see drama.
