Winter’s Bone

Sundance Film Festival favorite, Winter’s Bone is a small, independent film that has managed to achieve greatness. The film is three movies in one: a mystery, a portrait of a teenager holding her family together with steely determination and a look at a subculture unfamiliar to most of us–methamphetamine has taken over this part of the Ozarks. Seventeen year old Ree Dolly has to make sure her meth-making father makes a court appearance but first she has to find him. Jennifer Lawrence’s performance as Ree is generating Oscar buzz–deservedly so.
Based on a book of the same name by Daniel Woodrelll whose writing is described as “country noir’. Read the book and watch the movie–you won’t be disappointed.
