The Ice Storm

Sept. 27
By Beth Accomando and Cinema Junkie by Beth Accomando

Ben Hood (Kevin Kline) tries to partake in the new sexual freedoms by having an affair with his neighbor Janey Carver (Sigourney Weaver). But Ben is ill suited to adultery and reveals his conventionality even as he tries to rebel against it. After a quickie with Janey, Ben bores her with his woeful tales from the office and the golf course. And Janey has to remind him that she's already got one husband and isn't looking for another.
