Overview
Kevin Kline, Joan Allen and Sigourney Weaver turn in crystalline performances in the story of two dysfunctional families who learn to cope with the unyielding forces of nature — human nature — in this emotionally charged tale of surburban life in the '70s. When a self-centered husband's relationships with his wife and mistress grow cold, it takes a wife-swapping "key party" and a freak ice storm to clear the air...and change their lives forever. Director Ang Lee offers a compelling look at a controversal era.
