Winter’s Bone: best drama at 2010 Sundance Film Festival

Some movies say too little, and nothing happens. Other films say too much, and too much happens. In Winter’s Bone, plenty happens and just enough is said. In the way of any great story, much is implied by the smallest actions and fewest of words.

Set in Ozark Mountains in the central United States, the film also provides an unflattering but beautiful portrait of this desolate place. These are country hicks without the clichés, hard people under no illusions about the trials of life. Standout performances come from Jennifer Lawrence and John Hawkes. A deserved winner of best drama and screenplay at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival. Based on the novel by Daniel Woodrell.
