"This movie makes me want to go back to Miami," whispered Florida native Sarah Arison at the Cinema Society screening of Thin Ice. The weather—snow, ice, cold—was relentless in this clever tale of a sleazy, small-time insurance salesman who tries to con an old man out of the money for a violin his late sister left him.
"There's a point where you can get so cold making a film that it induces laughter," Greg Kinnear, in Calvin Klein, told FashionEtc. "Beyond what the coldest is you can ever imagine, where you're just saying 'shit it's cold,' there's another layer and it drops way down and it comes bubbling up and it becomes laughter. As Billy Crudup, Alan Arkin and I were filming on a frozen lake, at some point that became the funniest moment. Doesn't sound so now, but at the time, hysterical."
Kinnear's character, the insurance salesman, is trying to get back together with his estranged wife, played by Lea Thompson, who had a hard time shopping for the evening.
"This dress is H&M. I bought it today because I didn't have anything to wear. I swear to God I looked for three hours to find something to wear underneath this Tahari coat," said Thompson with a laugh. "I have a hard time getting dressed because sometimes I'm in character. Right now I'm on this show called Switched At Birth. My character has this ordered life that she thought was perfect, but then she finds out she raised somebody else's kid. In that show I wear put-together, Kansas City upper crust girl clothes, but in reality I'm more artsy and cool, so I get confused when I shop."
