    J-Law guapa y aquí actúa sacando la artillería pesada.
    No me atrapo la historia.

    I'm not entirely sure how I feel about this one.

    It's not the most confounding of films but it sure is an odd one. Initially the narrative looks like it's heading in the direction of a modern, pro-feminist re-imagining of a classic Western, such as John Ford's The Searchers (both even share a similar plot thread about seeking out a missing relative). Then the subtle yet effective sound design, chilling cinematography and adequately atmospheric score start to steer things more…

    Known retrospectively as the movie that launched the decade's biggest star into the public eye, Winter's Bone is a brooding Sundance drama that provides a window into one of America's most remote regions--the Ozarks. Though the plot is spread a little thin through the film's 100-minute runtime, the impeccable sense of place and confident direction by Debra Granik serve as a vehicle for Jennifer Lawrence's star-making performance.

    Ree Dolly (Jennifer Lawrence) is a fiercely independent young woman living in a…

    I love this film. Jennifer Lawrence is so great and understated in her performance, I think it's my favourite of hers. There's such a chill and eeriness about this movie with a story that keeps driving it forwards at a perfect pace. It's just great isn't it

    An outstanding performance by a young 20 year old Jennifer Laurence who has to find her father to save the family from being evicted.

    It is set in a bleak and unforgiving male dominated community and landscape but the overall theme of survival and family love are subtle enough to carry the hope of the story. It is one the best leading female roles i have seen in a long time. I wish she would pick more roles like this to showcase her talent rather than the CGI big money movies she seems to be stuck in.

    You can see why this was Jennifer Lawrence's break-out performance. She has an unarguable presence and charisma, she reins herself in to evoke a gritty resilience and bravery. It is a part that is notably similar to Catniss Everdeen in Hunger Games: resourceful, caring, tough and tender.

    Despite this, I would say the stand-out actor in Winter's Bone is John Hawkes as 'Teardrop' who is Ree's rough, drug taking uncle. It's an adept performance, mixing suspicion, aggression, doubt but also…

    A masterclass in over/under-acting.
    Jennifer Lawrence fluctuates between long periods of refusing to move her face or raise her voice, and short bursts of over the top teary-eyed scream/whispering.
    In every scene she looks on the verge of forgetting her lines or following a directing instruction and never convinces as this character. Always feeling like an actor playing a character.

    She uses one or two of her limited tools as an actor to get through this film and for most…

    Here, Jennifer Lawrence takes the role of the 17-year-old Ree Dolly living in the Missouri Ozark Mountains. She cares for her younger siblings and mentally ill mother while searching for her missing father who was involved in the local drug trade. Her troubles were made even more difficult by secrets kept to her by her own relatives regarding the disappearance of his father. Ree kept reminding them of their blood ties but nobody wanted to talk.

    "Talking just causes witnesses,…

    Beautifully filmed, a bit of a slow movie, but an honest movie about an Ozark Mountain girl in search of her father to try and prevent eviction of her and her family. The film also depicts the strong and tight society of the Ozark Mountain community and the way they settle things amonst themselves. For me, as someone who's more or less unfamiliar with these kind of communities, this film gives a good insight into it. And last but not least a great performance from Jennifer Lawrence and John Hawkes. 4/5
