This film is about a 17-year-old Ozark girl must navigate a difficult world while tracking down her drug-dealing father and keeping her own family together. This movie got Gritty and got a little dark towards there end, But I thought this movie was a bit boring and I didn't remember much about the movie because I watched this movie days ago and I forgot most of it to be honest. The only good thing in this movie was Jennifer Lawrence and that's it.

Stronger on place than plot, a place I am glad not to have been born to. Well depicted - full marks to all the actors.

"Winter's Bone" by Yojimbo

A 17 year old girl left to care for her family in dirt-poor rural Alabama goes in search of her absentee father when faced with the choice of either forcing him to appear before the court or losing their home. Winter's Bone, despite its detective story-style premise, has a flavour very much of a frontier western; take away the synthetic fabrics, pick-up trucks, indoor plumbing and narcotics of choice and you have a community whose life has probably remained pretty much unchanged in the last hundred years. It's a portrait of the struggles of living below the poverty line in contemporary rural America as Jennifer Lawrence's destitute but proud heroine explores the underbelly of her tightly knit but deeply dysfunctional extended family. It's a stark, bleak and gritty drama full of characterf...

Jennifer Lawrence Great Performance

Seventeen-year-old Ree Dolly has a problem. She's stuck trying to manage a run-down household that consists of her ailing Mom, two younger siblings, an absent father, and no income to support them. That problem becomes minor when Ree learns that her meth-cooking Dad has put up their home and land for bail - and is now nowhere to be found. Things come to a head when Ree is told she has just days to produce Jessup (her father) or face eviction. She attempts to follow what little trail Jessup has left behind with no idea of the dangers that await her.

Winter's Bone is an independent film directed by Deborah Granik who shared screenwriting credits with Anne Rosellini, the latter also doing double duty as producer. The film is derived from the Daniel Woodrell novel that carries the same tit...

Sploich Reviews Winter's Bone (2010)

I love movies about poor people. I love watching trashy people live normal lives and not complaining about it. Some call them rednecks, I call them entertainment. That being said, I had the pleasure recently to witness a rather unentertaining film called Winter's Bone.

This film is about a 17-year-old named Ree who is raising her two younger siblings while taking care of her cerebrally distant mother. She finds out that her drug-dealing father has gone missing and if he doesn't show up soon, the court will be forced to evict them from their home. She sets out to find him, despite many of her family members warning her against it.

Never have I been so invested in characters in a film while remaining completely and utterly bored out of my mind. Ree is a great character in that she has...
