    i mean i know sundance and tiff and the oscars generally go out of their way to find eerie indies to glorify each year but in all honesty why this one? the plot is pretty slow-going and a bit hard to follow and most of the actual movie is really hard to see because its so dang dark.

    filled with memorable scenes, sequences and shots, and full of good performances, this film’s real problem is weak writing that couldn’t be saved by any kind of dauntless directing.

    Debra Granik arma un suspenso tan respetuoso que es de admirarse. Al inicio de la película, con las caminatas de Ree, el personaje de Jennifer Lawrence, Granik construye un territorio con personajes rudos y amenazantes, y a su vez, personajes generosos y luchadores. Hay una admiración por la cultura del lugar y sus habitantes por completo, incluyendo sus intimidaciones. Aplausos a eso.

    Conforme Ree avanza queda claro que se esta metiendo en cosas que no va a poder controlar, que…

    Despite appearing on Guillermo Arriaga's "The Burning Plain", this film was the one that made Jennifer Lawrence a star

    I didn't find it interesting at all, sadly.

    A surprisingly accurate adaptation from the book, but more importantly a REALLY GOOD adaptation. The whole cast is talented but 18-year-old Jennifer Lawrence as responsibility-laden 17-year-old, Ree Dolly, is the definite highlight. No wonder she was nominated for an Oscar for this movie. Her best work by far.

    J-Law and J-Hawkes are both really good. The movie is bleak, but also pretty dull.

    Love this adaptation of Daniel Woodrell's novel. I read the book first and if you're a reader, I recommend it wholeheartedly. Whereas the film is only bleak, the novel is bleak in content but beautiful in its poetic prose. Although I felt the film didn't live up to the imagery Woodrell created for me as a reader, everything that is better in the novel is matched by the brilliant performance of Jennifer Lawrence as Ree. She carries this film and it made her a star.
