Winter's Bone Reviews

Peyton Place meets Deliverance in a meth lab.

Full Review Source: Cinemania | Original Score: 82/100

July 11, 2012

In moments of confrontation [Jennifer Lawrence's Ree] is as fearsome as Sigourney Weaver in Aliens, taking on monsters to protect the small and the vulnerable.

Winter's Bone is an absorbing and socially conscious piece of work, underwritten by the constant threat of violence.

The Standard

Granik... proves a dab hand with the camera, capturing the starkness of the Ozarks and Ree's situation in a free-flowing and pensive way that transfers the chill of it all on to the screen.

Not having been to this part of the country, I can't say for sure whether Granik has captured it accurately. The point is that it feels genuine.

Fiona Williams

Granik pays deference to the curious ways of the mountain folk, rejecting the prevailing hillbilly clichés to depict people with hardy survival instincts in the grip of financial hardship and addiction.

Emanuel Levy

An unflinching portrait of shabby life in the Ozarks, this powerful indie drama features an Oscar-caliber turn from Jennifer Lewis, a real discovery who's only 20, in the lead.

Uruguay Total

Un retrato realista, crudo y duro de ambientes y personajes que viven al margen de la sociedad, de la ley y la moral, y que crece en intensidad como un thriller de suspenso. Estupendas actuaciones de Jennifer Lawrence y John Hawkes.

Cinema em Cena

Uma narrativa densa e multifacetada que permite que aquelas pessoas desafiem nossos preconceitos e se apresentem como indivíduos imperfeitos, sim, mas jamais unidimensionais.

There is a profound sense of Neorealism percolating beneath Winter's Bone's noirish mystery plot.

Debra Granik's bleak little film is as tough, unflinching and fascinating as the characters who eke out a life amid its cold, gray hills.

... consciously attempting to avoid clichés can erode authenticity. To director Debra Granik's credit, realism permeates every frame of digital imagery

A gripping movie that graphically portrays poverty as the worst form of violence in the life of a 17-year-old heroine struggling to save her family.

Winter's Bone is boosted by a stellar cast of characters who engender both scares and occasional sympathy.

Tony Macklin

Winter's Bone is as quiet as a snake. It's a chilling and challenging visit into a remote -- perhaps alien -- world. But while Winter's Bone has anguish and fear, the film is ultimately life-affirming and real.
