I have to agree with the other reviewer who described this as one of the best films of the year but sadly it will only reach a limited audience. This is a fascinating and disturbing glimpse into the world of 'poor white trash' in Missouri. Ree Dolly is a 17yr old girl who cares for her mother and two younger siblings whilst her absent father is off cooking crystal meth. They are dirt poor and live on the charity of their neighbours and what they can hunt but they are also proud. Ree will not let her brother ask for help saying they will only accept what should be freely offered. Her errant father appears to skip bail and she has to find him before the bail bondsman takes their shack and they are all left homeless. This is a world where blood is still thicker than water but that doesn't mean your relatives are unwilling to spill it. Ree battles against a wall of silence and eventually brutality in her search where it appears no one will help her. Yes this film is bleak and at times can be brutal and yet through it all glimpses of human kindness and caring still shine through. The generally unknown cast do a fantastic job and leading lady 20 year old Jennifer Lawrence will struggle to better her superb performance in this film. This is a film to watchand absorb and then feel grateful for your comfortable life. It is also a film to tell your friends about.

For me this is the movie of the year so far. It's quite a simple story, which I wont spoil for you now, but it is richly drawn and full of menace and suspense. Although the subject matter is often horrific and unsettling, it is always suggested than rather smeared all over the screen, makings it's impact more real. The acting is excellent throughout, with the characters being as convincing and they are frightening.

The heroine of the movie inspires admiration and affection, and even raises a few laughs despite her perilous predicament. Although the film portrays a landscape of desperation and desolation, it is ultimately satisfying and uplifting.

Format: DVD
The plot is fairly simple. Ree Holly (Jennifer Lawrence) is at home taking care of her mother, who takes happy pills and is menatlly out of it. She also cares for her two siblings. She is 17. She goes to school and chops wood too. Clarence Carter's "Patches" lived in a dream world compared to her. Her father is missing and it appears he will miss bail. The family farm has been put up for bond. Ree searches for her father, who made and sold Meth.

The movie is shot on location in Southern Missouri, Jesse James country. It captures impoverished rural America. The accents are remarkably well done and not overdone like so many films. Jennifer Lawrence gives us an Academy Award performance. The movie also captures the independent spirit of the people, their general disdain of law enforcement, and their willingness to help each other in a time of crisis, in spite of a certain code of silence.

Like many small isolated communities, most folk are somehow kin. Ree uses the kin card to elicit help. Her uncle, who refused to help her, eventually does so after Ree displays bravery and persistence. Remarkable performances by the entire cast, including the child actors. There are no super heroes walking tall or high action scenes. It is realistic, which translates into scenes some might consider boring, although I personally found them interesting as we worked with Ree to unravel a simple mystery, one which everyone seems to know the answer, but no one is telling.

There is no sex or nudity, but it does show people with a meth spoon up their nose.

Format: DVD
Winter's Bone is a 2010 film. It explores the interrelated themes of close and distant family ties, the power and speed of gossip, patriarchy, self-sufficiency, and rural poverty in the Ozark people (in Missouri) as they are impacted by the pervasive underworld of illegal crystal meth labs. For me, the film underscores an increasing problem in America: the growth of an increasingly larger underclass of deprived people with little hope of advancing themselves. The debris of wrecked lives is everywhere here, with decrepit houses and yards filled with dead cars, broken appliances, old farm equipment and other junk.

17-year-old Ree Dolly (up and coming Jennifer Lawrence) is the sole responsible "adult" in her family - with a younger brother and sister and an incapacitated mother. She finds herself forced to track her fugitive father, a longtime crystal meth maker, through the most hardcore of the local criminal network after she learns that he has put their home up as his bail bond. Ree and her family will literally be cast into the wilderness if she can't find her father dead or alive. Jennifer Lawrence (20 in real life) radiates presence and strength well beyond her years here.

This film is gritty, stark and certainly not a date movie, but it is a compelling tale based pretty much on real life.

Recommended.

First of, I didn't read the novel, so the whole discussion whether the film is bad because the book is better is irrelevant to me. Secondly, this didn't feel as a thriller at all. I know one thing, however: I watched this film and was deeply impressed by the casting, the acting -- in particular the protagonist's performance -- , the dialogue, and last but not least, the sets. This film truly deserves an Oscar if only because of the set decoration. I was allowed a 100 minutes peek into a dark, depressing world in which a stubborn, unflinching teenager fights for some security in a hostile world, an experience so intense that afterward it felt as though I had really met these individuals, traveled down there during a cruel winter and witnessed the behavior and way of living of these rough people in the Ozarks. If a film can do that, making us forget reality and live with fictional characters, truly feel the atmosphere of a particular place, then I think it has accomplished something. A remarkable movie!
