Winter’s Bone

A star was born.

One moment Jennifer Lawrence was a promising young actress with a few roles under her belt.

Then, in a flash, she was a bona fide Oscar-worthy leading woman thanks to this uncompromising rural drama.

Boldly crashing through a tough land filled with tougher people, she’s an Ozarks native trying to track down her missing father while holding life together in a house where she’s forced to be an adult while still a relative child.

Meth addiction hangs heavy, with her uncle (the splendid John Hawkes) among those brought low.

No easy answers here, just raw realism.
