OTTAWA PREMIERE | BEST DEBUT FEATURE, BERLIN INTL FILM FESTIVAL 2011
Three teenage friends leave on a seal-hunting trip. Only two come back. Thats the deceptively simple set up for this this uncommonly involving thriller (Roger Ebert) set in in the native Inupiat community of Barrow, Alaska. Cold as ice and sharp as the winter sun, this is noir that cracks under your feet. Tread carefully.
