"Your daddy left you to deal with that?"
Debra Granick, director of Down to the Bone and Stray Dog, delivers Winter's Bone in her second major motion picture offering. The storyline for this picture is interesting in a Season 1 True Detective kind of way with worse acting and an almost as interesting setting. The cast delivers uneven performances and includes Jennifer Lawrence, Shelley Waggener, Garrett Dillahunt, and Lauren Sweetser.
"I'm the one who put the hurt on that girl."
I randomly came across this on cable and decided to DVR it. This was an interesting character for Lawrence and I liked it for the most part. The story plays out in a predictable fashion with a couple well done twists. This is entertaining and worth viewing once.
"We'll take you to your daddy's bones."
Stir in the brilliant John Hawkes, emerging super-star Jennifer Lawrence, an Ozark Mountain mystery, a banjo, a few great dogs and we have a minor masterpiece.
