THE ICE HARVEST
Opening on November 23rd, The Ice Harvest is characterized as a wickedly funny thriller about thick thieves and thin ice. It’s Christmas Eve in rainy, icebound Wichita, Kansas, and this year Charlie Arglist (John Cusack) just might have something to celebrate. Charlie, an attorney for the sleazy businesses of Wichita, and his unsavory associate, the steely Vic Cavanaugh (Billy Bob Thornton), have just successfully embezzled $2,147,000 from Kansas City boss Bill Guerrard (Randy Quaid). Even so, the real prize for Charlie would be the stunning Renata (Connie Nielsen), who runs the Sweet Cage strip club. Charlie’s fondest Christmas wish is to slip out of town with Renata. But, as daylight fades and a storm whirls, everyone from Charlie’s drinking buddy Pete Van Heuten (Oliver Platt) to the local police begin to wonder just what exactly is in Charlie’s Christmas stocking. For Charlie, the 12 hours of Christmas Eve are filled with nonstop twists and turns, both on the ice and off.
In this teen thriller, eight unsuspecting high school seniors playing a game of lies come face-to-face with terror and learn that nobody believes a liarâ€¦even when they’re telling the truth. After one too many incidents of bad behavior at his last school, Owen Matthews (Julian Morris) arrives at Westlake Prep â€“ where a young woman has recently been found murdered in the dark woods near the boarding school’s campus.

The mischievous group’s descriptions of â€œThe Wolf’sâ€ intended victims are based on the people they know best â€“ each other. Only when the school’s journalism teacher, Rich Walker (Jon Bon Jovi), warns the group about the kinds of predators that lurk on the internet does Owen begin to regret sending their falsified story into cyberspace. When the described â€œvictimsâ€ suddenly start to disappear, Owen, Dodger, and Tom are no longer able to determine where the lies end and the truth begins.
