Too slow...too boring.... way too overrated....John Hawkes gives a good performance.
grim story with unforgetable characters.
I saw this movie, mind u I am into horror movies! but I thought this sucked
Oscar contest If this is her first leading role in a movie, I wouldn't believe it. Her acting is seasonned. You buy the harshness of life when you follow her through the struggle. At such a young age, she's already mastered the art of acting that would take years to develop.
Ree Dolly is definitely a great young female character, Jennifer Lawrence is a fabulous actress. The Ozarks scenery is so integral to the story that it is almost one of the characters. I hope more people choose to see this film.
My favourtie young female character ever.
While I won't give away the plot, let me say the way it is told is wonderful.
Note:This is a film of exceptioal merit,a must-see.Jennifer Lawrence's performance as Ree Dolly in this Ozarks thriller shows acting prowess beyond her years. Her character faces trials that would destroy most adults. Her search for her meth-head father encounters resistance from the locals who follow a code of silence that is not unlike that of the mafia's code of omerta.Ree's investigation leads to a shocking conclusion.The film contains brutal truths along with stark emotions.It's a bare-bones epic of America amongst the poorest of the poor in Missouri.You can plainly see the hopelessness and dispair in the eyes of these wretched souls. During production,various local types were employed
Great acting, well-paced!
Very good movvie
Winter's Bones (WB) explores the stength, persevaration and ambitions of the main caracter. Throughout the movie, the audience can enjoy the conflicts, the gritty environment and the filming style that WB has to offer. A real interesting movie.
Jennifer Lawrence does an excellent job in the role of Ree, a teenager who has the responsibility of looking after her mother and her two young siblings. It was intense and thought provoking, but I loved it.
great movie, really enjoyed it, watch and enjoy
Well crafted movie !
Strong performance of lead actress, should get nominated and maybe win. Loved the look of the film. Felt like a Mary Ellen Mark photograph come to life. Dark, deary, and yet uplifting on the shoulder's of the female lead.
Shockingly good film!
This is a way of life that we don't often get to see. The acting is excellent.
very good movie
Surprisingly good movie. Strong performances and well acted. Definitely worth seeing.
It proves that low budget independent film can be oscar worthy
Not bad. I think I would have enjoyed it considerably more if I were not so used to everything Hollywood puts out. With that in mind, very different, and worth checking out if looking for something well away from the blockbuster fare.
A good drama. Unexpected turns & outcome.
