***Mysterious winter death at an exclusive prep school in the Northeast***

A 17 year-old student (Thomas Gibson) from the prestigious Haddan School is found frozen in the nearby river. The school wants to avoid negative press by quickly closing the case as a suicide, but police officer Abel Grey (Edward Burns) smells something fishy and considers the possibility of a hazing gone wrong. Rachelle Lefevre plays a friend of the dead student while Jamie Thomas King appears as his rival for her affections. Jennifer Ehle is on hand as an engaged teacher at the school that captures Abel’s attention as he’s investigating.

“The River King” (2005) is a drama/mystery that takes the setting of “Dead Poets Society” (1989), albeit in the modern day, and adds elements seen in later films, like “Snow Angels” (2007), “Coming Through the Rye” (2015) and “The Drowning” (2016). If you favor these types of films you’ll appreciate this one. While not on the level of “Dead Poets” and “Snow Angels,” it’s not too far behind.

Burns is a Ben Affleck lookalike and makes for a quality protagonist while Ehle is reminiscent of a young Meryl Streep. Of course, Lefevre is jaw-dropping from beginning to end. The winter setting of the school, the surrounding woods and nearby town is a highlight. Meanwhile the story is realistic and intricate without being convoluted. There’s a love affair that completely smacks of reality. Everything gels, including the end revelation and how it relates to Abel’s haunting past and current burdens.

The film runs 1 hour, 39 minutes and was shot in Nova Scotia, Canada (Halifax & Windsor).
