Winter’s Bone


Like last year’s excellent Frozen River directed by Courtney Hunt, Winter’s Bone is another example of a female director – in this case Deborah Grahnik – making a brilliant independent film that goes beyond the tired parameters of Hollywood standards that joyless tripe like Valentine’s Day and The Ugly Truth revel in so profitably.

You can read my Winter’s Bone review on The Other Side mag website, and a great article in yesterday’s Observer on Women directors: the new generation.

  1. I wasn’t totally involved with this story, but the acting and character driven element made me like it more. Still, I think it’s the weakest out of the Best Picture race this year! Good review, check out mine when you can!
