17 year-old Ree Dolly 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.
Roger EbertFull Review Excellent Unmistakably filmed on location, this film focuses on a society that has been left behind. It looks like Walker Percy's photographs of the rural Depression, brought forward to today. The unanswered question is how Ree Dolly grew up in this world and became strong, self-reliant and proud. She didn't learn it from her parents.
USA TodayFull Review Excellent Every so often a film gets under our skin with its haunting authenticity, reinforcing our faith in the wonderfully transporting power of cinematic storytelling. Winter's Bone is unquestionably that film. It is the year's best drama thus far. Film fans will lose out on a remarkable experience if they miss this study of a character whose resilience, despite all odds, is deeply moving.
