The Ice Storm is a major tour de force motion picture set in 1970's Long Island during Thanksgiving. What ostensibly seems like a sharp social satire metamorphoses into a film of devastating emotional power, about the silences that freeze the soul. The Ice Storm, the latest project from acclaimed director Ang Lee, is a witty and moving portrait of a family cast adrift in the changing times of the 1970's America. Beautifully played by a cast which includes Sigourney Weaver, Kevin Kline, Elijah Wood and Joan Allen.

The Ice Storm won the Best Screenplay Award for writer James Schamus at the 1997 Cannes Film Festival.

The first 100 callers to apply for their cinema tickets will win either the book or the CD.

The Ice Storm, written by Rick Moody is an astonishing novel of the decade that taste forgot. The book is available at all good bookshops priced at pounds 6.99.

The Ice Storm soundtrack featuring artists such as David Bowie and Frank Zappa is released on Velvel Records and is available at Virgin Megastore and all good record shops.

It's November 1973, in New Canaan, Conneticut. Watergate has caught up with Richard Nixon. The Beatles are recording solo albums. Wife swapping has come to the suburbs. And the Hood family is skidding out of control.

Ben Hood (Kevin Kline) is trying to bed his mistress, nextdoor neighbour Janey Carver (Sigourney Weaver), who seems oddly uninterested. Ben's wife, Elena (Joan Allen), is reading Jonathon Livingstone Seagull and Human Sexual Response and losing patience with her husband's clumsy lies while young Wendy Hood (Christina Ricci) is finding games to play with the boys next door, Mike Carver (Elijah Wood) and his little brother Sandy (Adam Hann-Byrd).

The day after Thanksgiving, the Hoods' son Paul (Toby Maguire) escapes the city to pursue an alluring rich girl from his prep school, and Ben and Elena attend a cocktail party which turns out to be a "key party": a wife swapping lottery at the end of the evening for couples who dare, or just don't care anymore.

As night falls and the members of the family embark on their separate sexual odysseys, an ice storm hits the East Coast, the worst in thirty years. The events of that night - by turns ribald, comic and tragic - will bring the Hood family face-to-face with one another for the first time when they meet again, in the cold light of early morning after the ice storm has passed.
