    Winter's Bone

    Winter's Bone (2010)

    Painfully realistic film with an anonymous cast that tells an ugly story about deadbeats and losers and drug money... oh, and a young girl who's got to bear the family left behind on her back. The film got most of its notice for being Jennifer Lawrence's breakout performance - in a rather understated part - but there's more here than her. The relationships between characters are dark and tough but easy to relate to, even if you're nothing like these meth-cooking hicks; family's family, and there's nothing you can do but get on with it. An unceremonious and unsentimental story about triumph over all-too-real adversity. Great watch.
