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

A bleak, depressing film that is well made, but I would not consider it one of the best of the year.

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...

Hicks and Their Secrets

Sadly, I feel like I'm one of the only film-cravers out here who cared little for this tale. High expectations and critically rave reviews set me to be excited for this hapless film, offering little more to me than two hours of wasted cinematic energy. The story is far too simple to be complex, which it tries exceedingly hard to do, and rarely escapes anywhere useful. The first hour of the film alone doesn't let us get to know any of the characters as who they really are, but only offers bad symbolism into their harsh nature. The atmosphere was not sufficient to carry the film's central conceit, and the direction did little more than offer the same formula over and over again (Ree goes someplace broken down, a woman meets her at the door, says something sharp, invites her in, she's tu...
