“Thin Ice” is a 2011 American film directed by Jill Sprecher. The movie is a dark comedy/thriller about a small-time insurance salesman named Mickey Prohaska (played by Greg Kinnear) who gets embroiled in a series of deceptions and double-crosses after he tries to steal a valuable violin from one of his clients.
The film also stars Alan Arkin as a retired farmer, Billy Crudup as a locksmith, and Lea Thompson as Mickey’s estranged wife. The story takes place in the winter in Wisconsin, and the setting adds to the bleak and isolated atmosphere of the film.
“Thin Ice” received mixed reviews from critics but was generally praised for its performances and dark humor. The film was not a commercial success, grossing only around $1 million at the box office. Despite this, it remains a cult favorite among fans of offbeat thrillers.
