Debra Granik's powerful, uncompromising Winter's Bone was one of my stand outs from this year's Sydney Film Festival. Now, thanks to Curious Film, I'm thrilled to be giving away tickets to see the film upon its theatrical release on November 11.
17 year-old Ree Dolly (Jennifer Lawrence) 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.
Based on the novel by Daniel Woodrell, WINTER'S BONE is directed by Debra Granik (DOWN TO THE BONE) and adapted for the screen by Granik and Anna Rosellini. The film stars Jennifer lawrence, John Hawkes, Kevin Breznahan, Dale Dickey, Garret Dillahunt, Sheryl Lee and Tate Taylar.
WINTER'S BONE was awarded the Grand Jury Prize as well as the Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival.
