Winter´s Bone - D. Granik (2010)


This America - trailer park and meth cooking 'white trash' America - is seldom shown on film, which may explain the eerie impression resting over this opus.

But then, that uncanny feeling could also be due to the gloomy but gripping subject matter, the subdued staging or Katniss Everdeen Jennifer Lawrence´s excellent acting.

All in all; not the film of the year (still waiting for that one, I guess) but an hour and a half well spent.
