A nexus of desperation and greed lies at the heart of the black-comedy crime drama Thin Ice, an official selection at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. Greg Kinnear stars as Mickey Prohaska, an insurance salesman living and working in rural Wisconsin. Like his professional career, Mickey’s personal life is in a rut following a divorce from his wife Jo Ann (Lea Thompson). When Mickey discovers one of his clients, retired famer Gorvy Hauer (Alan Arkin), is unknowingly in possession of a rare vintage violin, he hatches a plan to separate the man from his beloved musical instrument. A scheme that starts as difficult soon becomes dangerous as Mickey learns that not everything is as it seems! Also starring Billy Crudup and Bob Balaban.
