Charms, moves and treats the senses...an honest delight,
This review is from: The Ice Storm [DVD]  (DVD)
A beautiful, existential melancholy malaise is created in a wonderfully realised 70s white middle class US suburban town where adolescent and middle aged "friends and neighbours" explore fulfilment within their daily lives amid a changing social and political landscape.
The great ensemble cast deliver a sharp script in a perfectly paced and superbly shot melancholy story. And as autumn drifts into winter their struggle for something pure, untainted and lasting reaches a tragic climax on the night of an almost ethereal "ice storm".
A charming and moving treat for the senses that lingers...
