Winter of Frozen Dreams is a 2009 independent American crime drama directed by Eric Mandelbaum, and starring Thora Birch, Keith Carradine, and Brendan Sexton III. The film follows the story of Barbara Hoffman, a Wisconsin biochemistry student and prostitute convicted of murder in the first televised murder trial ever.


Filming locations[edit]

The film was primarily shot in Schenectady, New York, with parts of the movie also filmed in Mariaville, Scotia, and Alplaus, New York.[citation needed]


A controversy during filming involving Birch's father and his forced presence during Birch's taping of a sex scene for the movie made tabloid headlines.[2]
