    Not good at all. No evolving drama, rare mimic, a lot of senseless (and still not creative though) scenes and minimalistic characters. But Jennifer Lawrence and the brother of her dad played well.

    Gripping thriller and probably the best thing Jennifer Lawrence ever did.

    A joyless, gritty Southern-noir drama that plays the drama a little too heavy and has a lot of unexplored backstory, but it's winning protagonist makes it memorable. It's interesting how these stereotypical white trash characters slowly become real people by the end of the film. I don't see it doing much beyond the festival circuit though - it's just too low key.

    A very strong character driven movie. It is all about the mood. Here you are introduced into a world far in the countryside where people operate with different instincts and code of honor. In a way, it is disturbing to most reasonable people. It is a slowly, methodical mystery movie. The sheriff comes to the door to inform a 17 year old caring for the family that if the father does not show up for his court hearing, the house…

    Winter's Bone is a gritty, quiet and authentic drama anchored by a terrific lead performance from Jennifer Lawrence.

    I really wish there more films that dealt with this segment of U.S. life.

    Sometimes, I really feel like Jennifer Lawrence can be overrated because of her part in the X-Men and Hunger Games franchises -- but this film, along with a few others, is a testament to her acting capability. In what is her breakthrough performance, Winter's Bone is the story of 17 year old Ree, desperate to find her father before the family home is seized and her two siblings and mother are left destitute.

    The Ozark Mountains and the dilapidated houses…

    Sure, Jennifer Lawrence makes a hell of an appearance here, but isn't Winter's Bone just a strange kind of prejudice-driven poverty porn?

    Somber story that takes place during the cold autumn of the Ozarks as 16-year-old Jennifer Lawrence searches for her missing miscreant father in order to save her home from repossession. She's in almost every scene and thus the film rests solely on her young shoulders, and she has the determination to pull off a positive result for this modest low-key drama.

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I wanted to see this movie because Jennifer Lawerence was picked for Hunger Games because of her role in this movie.

    It was not a bad movie - actually she plays the strong survivor very well. It just got depressing.

    Her dad needs to show up for his court date or they forfeit the house and land they're living on. She stirs up a hornet's nest asking after him. Turns out he did not want to do time again, so…
