New from A Reel of One’s Own by Andrea Thompson: 52 Films By Women: Winter’s Bone (2010)

By Andrea Thompson

Life-changing is a cliché I hesitate to use, but that was certainly my experience when I saw “Winter’s Bone” in theaters in 2010. I remember being in awe, not just of the film’s magnificent characters, none of whom came off as stereotypical, but the actors who brought them to life with a tenderness that was in stark contrast to the harsh Ozark setting that director Debra Granik depicted with such quiet, unflinching intensity.
