Winter's Bone, dark powerful drama.

Winter's Bone directed by Debra Granik staring Jennifer Lawrence as Ree Dolly. An unflinching Ozark Mountain girl hacking through dangerous social terrain as she hunts down her drug-dealing father while trying to keep her family intact. John Hawkes plays Teardrop, her drug dealing scary as all hell Uncle.

Seventeen-year-old Ree Dolly (Jennifer Lawrence) sets out to track down her father, who put their house up for his bail bond and then disappeared. If she fails, Ree and her family will be turned out into the Ozark woods. Challenging her outlaw kin's code of silence and risking her life, Ree hacks through the lies, evasions and threats offered up by her relatives and begins to piece together the truth.
Based on the novel by Daniel Woodrell.
This movie won Best Picture at the Sundance Film Festival to boot!
I knew this movie was going to be a dark drama going into it but I think nothing can prepare you for what you watch. It was heartbreaking and beautiful at the same time. Squirrels anyone?Awesome performances from the main characters made the movie feel all the more authentic.
Makes you appreciate what you have in life and feel moved to reach out to others in need. Great film with a powerful message if you can stomach the grit of the story.
Playing in select cites. Please lets hope your city was selected! :)
