Seventeen-year-old Ree Dolly sets out to track down her father, who put their house up for his bail bond and then disappeared. If she fails, Ree and her family will be turned out into the Ozark woods. Challenging her outlaw kin's code of silence and risking her life, Ree hacks through the lies, evasions and threats offered up by her relatives and begins to piece together the truth. Winter's Bone features a remarkable performance by emerging star Jennifer Lawrence and an incredible insight into the Ozark mountain community of mid-western America. The film is based on the acclaimed novel by 'southern gothic noir' novelist Daniel Woodrell, and adapted for the screen by director Debra Granik and long-time collaborator Anne Rosellini.
