The climate science documentary “Thin Ice” opens Oct. 11 at the Mary Riepma Ross Media Arts Center. A free “Thin Ice” movie talk led by UNL researchers David Harwood, Robert Oglesby and Ken Dewey is at 4:25 p.m. Oct. 13.

Also showing at the Ross is the romantic drama “Enough Said,” which stars Julia Louis Dreyfus and James Gandolfini

“Thin Ice” is not rated and plays through Oct. 17. “Enough Said” is rated PG-13 and runs through Oct. 24.

The movie talk panel will feature Harwood, research director of the ANDRILL Science Management Office, geosciences professor and E.E. and T.M. Stout Professor of Stratigraphy at UNL; Oglesby, professor of climate modeling at UNL, with joint appointments in earth and atmospheric sciences and natural resources; and Dewey, a professor of applied climate science in natural resources at UNL who gives talks to the public across the region on the topic of climate change.

In recent years climate science has come under increasing attack, so geologist Simon Lamb took his camera to find out what is really going on from his climate science colleagues. To make “Thin Ice,” Simon followed scientists at work in the Arctic, Antarctic, Southern Ocean, New Zealand, Europe and the United States. The researchers talk about their work, hopes and fears. The film creates an intimate portrait of the global community of researchers racing to understand our planet’s changing climate.

“Thin Ice” is a joint initiative between Oxford University, United Kingdom, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand, and London-based DOX Productions.

The “Thin Ice” movie talk follows the 3:05 p.m. screening of the film. The talk is free and open to the public. Admission to the screening is at regular Ross prices.

In “Enough Said,” Louis-Drefus plays Eva, a masseuse dreading her daughter’s impending departure for college. She meets Albert (Gandolfini), a funny and like-minded man also facing an empty nest.

As the romance blooms, Eva befriends Marianne (Catherine Keener), a new massage client. As Marianne talks bad about her former husband, Eva finds herself doubting her new relationship with Albert.
