Frozen River (2008)

This indy film takes a look at poverty in the United States and the inevitable desperation that many people reach. Contributing factors of addiction, high costs and low wages, the high demand for unlawful work make the country a breeding place for crime and broken families.

When a white woman is abandoned by her husband, she resorts to trafficking people from Canada to the U.S. with a young local Mohawk woman.

The acting is quite good and the actions of the characters truly reflect what people would do in those circumstances, but it also depicts the depravity of our society.
