Icehouse (2016)

Icehouse synopsis: A bunch of ice-fishing buddies concoct a plan to entice their friend, Oskar, from Florida, to come back up north to Minnesota. Their enticement is to build “the grandmother” of all icehouses; a giant ice chateau, complete with a kitchen, opulent dining room, bedrooms, running water, a bathroom, a sauna, and, of course, ice fishing holes. The icehouse is obviously a huge undertaking, and has to be kept a secret from all of the guys’ wives. To the absolute joy of his friends, Oskar gets on board with the plan. However, he has another reason for coming back to Minnesota – a reason he hasn’t shared with his buddies. This hilarious comedy takes a playful look at northern “small town” culture that is emblematic of a simpler time around the end of the 20th century.
