Excellent movie!!  I was sad that Elijah's character died at the end though.  All in all, a great flick.  I watched it about 4 times!

Sorry, if there is already  a thread, but I could not find it. I want to order Doms "Spivs" at Amazon and thinking about ordering also the "Ice storm", because there are very good reviews. But I read the book during my holidays and I have to confess, that there was NO character, that I liked. As I know, Lijah plays Mike, who dies
I also think, that S. Weaver and K. Kline are very good actors, but the book depressed me.
So, please can anybody tell me, if its worth?

I didn't really like it.

It was quite boring really and....just didn't really have a good story.

Although you know, everyone to their own.

Basically, it's the story of two dysfunctional families.  If you have read the book, Sabine, then you know that.  It's an intense movie, rather dark, excellent character development, and extremely well acted.  I think it's worth seeing just for the wonderful acting by the entire cast.  Elijah is good, as he always is, as a young teen who feels kind of lost.  Is there some way you could rent it first?  Then you could decide if you want to buy it.?

I quite liked it, I guess. I think it's worth seeing, but I don't know about buying it.

The movie is kind of dark, but I enjoyed it.  I think it would be worth trying to either take out at the library or rent it first.

That is what I would suggest too. I enjoyed it too and I liked Elijah in this movie even if the end is so sad

I loved the movie, it's definitely one of the best acting jobs that Elijah has done.

It's a very simple film, no special effects, just acting. That makes it so impressing for me. The acting is just amazing.

I can understand people find it boring or depressing, I guess you really have to adore film before you can appreciate something like "The Ice Storm".

I'm one of the ones who "adore" it, Cristiel.  It's full of actors I love, including, of course, Lij.

I thought it was great and intense. Both Lij and Christina Ricci are really good. Plus its Ang Lee whose style is wonderful. There is a haunted beauty to it, but it isn't happy

It is dark and moving in a sad way, but I find it worth watching. It is full of great actors and the director does a terrific job.
Maybe you could rent it or get it on loan from the library first to see if you like it.

Thanks for your answers and help!
At the moment it has very special price at amazon in UK,  I see this as a "sign" and will order it.
Normally I like those films with only good acting and directing and less or no special effects. It is always interesting to see what an actor can do without hiding behind technology and special effects.

No special effects in this one.  Just great acting, direction and script.  Go for it!

No, Jenny, it is not a horrible death at all.  But it is sad, of course.  You can handle it.
