Set in Wichita, Kansas, on Christmas Eve, the twisty, cool and funny, The Ice Harvest is also a film noir.

The tale casts John Cusack, who was popular at the time, as a mob lawyer who steals $2 million from his boss (Randy Quaid), only to face all kinds of issues hightailing it out of town because of bad weather.
