The Ice House

1997: The Ice House

Craig has only a supporting role in this adaptation of the Minette Walters novel of the same name, but it's an early indicator of his future leading-man status. He runs away with the flick as Detective-Sergeant Andy McLoughlin, the second on a suspicious death investigation who makes the error of getting involved with one of the three suspects. While his character arc is not exactly novel, the material is well-written and Craig makes it his own, creating a McLoughlin who would believably make his choices, rather than a gullible hero who gets duped. As the story unfolds and the character flourishes, you feel as if he's matured rather than been made to look like a fool. The Ice House has recently been released on DVD, this time with Craig getting top (and in fact only) billing on the cover. You can order your copy here.
