Movie Info

Three women who are viewed with suspicion by their neighbors become the center of an investigation with deadly consequences in this made-for-TV drama. Anne (Kitty Aldridge), Diana (Frances Barber), and Phoebe (Penny Downie) share a large old estate in a quiet rural community. The women are reclusive and are shunned by many of the townspeople -- partially because they're believed to be lesbians, and partly because the husband of one of the women disappeared under mysterious circumstances ten years ago. When a dead body is found in the ice house on the women's property, the same police detective who investigated the decade old missing-persons case is sent in to see if foul play is afoot; he was certain that the wife was responsible for her husband's disappearance before, and this time he's determined to put her behind bars. Based on the novel by Minette Walters, The Ice House was originally produced by the BBC and first aired in the United States on the PBS series Mystery! ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Ice House

Excellent adaptation of Minette Walters' first novel. A good mystery but even better as a psychological study and social critique. Daniel Craig gives an excellent performance as a troubled cop.
