She steals a video tape from the police that shows her sister Annie’s last known movements, and finds a mysterious image on it. Kath retraces her sisters final steps and becomes haunted by images of Annie in a strange landscape.

Has she found a link with the afterlife or is she losing touch with reality? It’s up to you to decide whether Frozen is a psychological thriller, a murder mystery or a ghost story

The Best British film in years.” Ken Russell, The Independent

McKoen shows a skill for finding the heart of a place, for pinpointing the mood and it is a beautifully stark film. Recommended.” Alex Crawford, BBC

Frozen is the most enthralling and intelligent British feature debut since Lynne Ramsays Ratcatcher (1999). An intriguing study of unresolved grief, Frozen is serious, mannered, rich in theme, achingly beautiful, with nuanced performances and a strong sense of place. In other words, the film’s director-co-writer Juliet McKoen may be a newcomer, but she arrives with a talent that is already fully formed.” Channel 4

A thoughtful, beautiful film that puts Shirley Henderson’s capability as a female lead beyond question.” Gareth McLean, Guardian Weekend Magazine
