Movie Review #319: Winter’s Bone

A chilling story of a strong-willed 17-year-old

This truly is Jennifer Lawrence’s breakthrough movie. It’s a perfect example of her showcasing her ability to move audiences with her acting. Only a few actresses could’ve possibly pulled off Ree, the female lead of Winter’s Bone, and she nailed it. Cap that off with a chilling story and you have a grounded film that makes you shiver in its bleakness. But it’s no perfect movie as it tends to drag things out. And with the scenes isolated mostly in the Ozark Mountain, it’s quite possible to get a little tired of the setting. Still it’s a movie that only needed Lawrence’s powerful acting to make it a solid watch.
