    I feel like Kevin Kline never quite had the career he deserved.

    American Beauty...

    except on a grander scale, with subtext, subtlety, and nuance, and shot much more beautifully.

    If you are familiar with any typical modern family dealing with coming-of-age, affairs, and life crisis' there isn't anything new here expect a stellar cast with Kevin Kline and Cristina Ricchi being the scene-stealers. Ang Lee does a good job with the direction and it ties up nicely but I just didn't really connect.

    Sex and ice. Simple. Awkward. Poignant. Often beautiful.

    #90 in my 99 90's Movies month. (Which isn't a month anymore. But, I'm borrowing Nuno Costa's idea like video game bonus points to reshape it into a project that will span however long it takes me to get to 99. Plus, I do have Magic March coming up, so, I have decent incentive to break the rules.)

    To me it seems like the inspiration for American beauty. A lot of the same character traits and themes line up. Both is about bored suburban families dealing with issues about love and sex.

    I could write a 2-page analysis comparing the two, but I'm lazy.
    I found a link to a very thorough comparison here:

    Also, it has Tobey Maguire, chick who played Wednesday Adams, and Elijah Wood in it so you know it's good.

    This is a stunning film about the icy (see what I did there) relationships between husbands and wives, sons and daughters, and friends. I was so so impressed by Joan Allen - I remember being blown away by her performance in Pleasantville and this performance is just as good, if not better as a housewife dealing with the realisation that her husband is having an affair. Kevin Kline is incredible as the husband also. It's such a beautiful looking film…

    Watched The Ice Storm for the first time

    I thought it was great!

    Such a great cast in this thing. Sigourney Weaver, maybe my favourite non-Ripley performance of hers.

    Kevin Kline I thought was VERY good as he tends to be. I wish he was in way more movies as good as this.

    Ang Lee never ceases to amaze me, the variety of movies he makes.

    I was shocked how funny it was in parts. It's a dark movie and…
