Not just any movie, but Winner of the 2010 Sundance Film Festival's Grand Jury Prize
Deep in the Ozark Mountains, clans live by a code of conduct that no one dares defy?until an intrepid teenage girl has no other choice. When Ree Dolly's crystal-meth-making father skips bail and goes missing, her family home is on the line. Unless she finds him, she and her young siblings and disabled mother face destitution. In a heroic quest, Ree traverses the county to confront her kin, break their silent collusion, and bring her father home.
With thrilling tension, Winter?s Bone depicts an archetypal rite of passage from adolescence to adulthood. Only this time, the young warrior is a girl. As our heroine braves immoveable obstacles, she redefines the notion of family loyalty and, in the process, discovers her own power. The spare precision of Debra Granik?s direction is effortlessly profound. Stunningly genuine performances and exquisite visual details capture the textures and rhythms of a world where the mythic and the naturalistic intermingle. (Sundance Film Festival Program Guide)

-- it looks like a great thriller.
We'll meet in the lobby of the Belcourt and head to Jackson's or Bosco's afterward to discuss the movie. I'll be easily spottable wearing a headband of laurel leaves.
There's also a meetup tomorrow for I Am Love, a meetup on the 28th for The Complete METROPOLIS, and a meetup for The Seven Samurai to be scheduled shortly!
