Winter’s Bone

Standard

Winter’s Bone is one of those rare films with a solid female lead, a talented female director, and scenes that place power and gender at the forefront while also delivering amazing performances, an honest story, and beautiful cinematography.

Winter’s Bone is the story of Ree, a 17 year old woman raising her two siblings and caring for her ill mother after her father is sent to jail. Already struggling, Ree gets word that her father has disappeared after posting their house for his bail bond. She has no choice but to find him or what became of him or lose everything.

Winter’s Bone is directed by Debra Granik and based on the novel by Daniel Woodrell.

  1. I wasn’t totally involved with this story, but the acting and character driven element made me like it more. Still, I think it’s the weakest out of the Best Picture race this year! Good review, check out mine when you can!
