A film I saw at Ebertfest, and it was a stunner. It is the story of Ray Eddy, an upstate New York trailer mom who is lured into the world of illegal immigrant smuggling when she meets a Mohawk girl who lives on a reservation that straddles the U.S.-Canadian border. Fantastic performances by Melissa Leo and Misty Upham (who tragically died in 2014). Rated R for language. (Mari)
