    Jennifer Lawrence before The Hunger Games

    This was fabulous, especially the commentary explaining the lengths to which the crew went to catch the flavor of southern rural Missouri. It bears some similarities to Three Billboards ..., but came almost a decade earlier (made in 2010). Many of the cast were local, all the sets and dressing were local - the flavor of the locale permeates everything. It's a family crisis movie - Lawrence's character (17) has to look out for her younger sibs and her non-compos-mentis Mom after Dad gets arrested again. This also came from the bargain bin at $4.- one of my best buys in quite a while.

    What a messed-up teenage life! Jennifer Lawrence and her co-star John Hawkes really made me feel for (sometimes fear) their characters. I have not read the book, but I understand that it explains some of the underlying relationships, like Ree's friendship with her high-school friend and her reluctance to have her siblings stay with one of her relatives. They used a real army recruiter in the movie and it is a touching, real moment. THIS STORY IS NOT FOR CHILDREN TO VIEW. The family relationships are too unusual to explain, and there are periods of violence/gore. Only recommended for adults.

    Excellent! This is the movie that put Jennifer Lawrence on the map (and she received a deserved Oscar nomination). J-Law was terrific in the role, having to undergo a real ordeal to save her family home. Believable and realistic as opposed to the fantasy Hunger Games movies (which aren't very good IMO). John Hawkes is great too, playing a scary dude you wouldn't want to cross. I've seen him in a number of films and he's always first rate. The whole cast is quite good, and this small indy film is EXCELLENT. Holds up after 3 viewings. Watch it!

    I am writing my review now, while I see this opportunity, before having seen the actual movie. I saw this in one of those clearance bins for like $4.99 while Christmas shopping and had to grab it up. I have not had the chance to sit down and watch it yet, but I am sure I will enjoy it. I am on a Jennifer Lawrence kick right know after her phenomenal performance in Silver Linings Playbook. I have heard good reviews on this film and have heard the premise. I am eager to see how the movie is. (Will try to post a subsequent review later).

    Jennifer Lawrence starts her promising career here

    See this current leading lady, at the start of her career, as one of today's most promising young actresses. This initial role was followed by more studied characterizations in her more successful starring roles in 'The Silver Lining Playbook' and as the heroine of 'The Hunger Games' series. Well worth seeing her progress from ingenue in 'Winter's Bone' followed by a meteoric rise, in the manner of Meryl Streep, to one of today's finest actresses.

    Modern Southern Gothic

    Although there are no ghosts, witches or anything supernatural WINTER'S BONE is a modern slice of Southern Gothic Horror at it's finest. A pitch and picture perfect cast led by young pre-superstardom Jennifer Lawrence and a menacing John Hawkes, this one will grip you, give you serious chills and stick with you for hours. Perhaps the most underrated drama of the past decade.

    Jennifer Lawrence Hints of Things to Come

    This movie flew under the radar until it became Oscar eligible. How did everybody miss it? Jennifer Lawrence absolutely mesmerizes with her performance. Talk about an indication of things to come! I wouldn't say this is a feel good movie so don't go into it thinking "Date Night Movie?" It's more a "Let's Get Depressed and Put on a Smiths Album!"
