This film has been getting a lot of critical buzz, our own Howie Movshovitz (Director of Education at Starz Film Center and freelance film critic for NPR) says this is the best film of the year (well so far this year). Some of you will remember the preview of this film from previous events. Due to a crazy summer schedule and lots of good films coming out this month we will see this film on Thursday night, kicking off a great holiday weekend. Afterward we'll head somewhere nearby for drinks and discussion.
Film starts at 7:15pm, we'll meet in the lobby at 7pm. Afterward we'll head somewhere nearby for drinks and discussion. Newbies always welcome! Just buy your ticket at the box office and look for me with the Meetup sign in the lobby.
Winner of the 2010 Sundance Film Festival's Grand Jury Prize and Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award, this tense, naturalistic thriller follows 17-year-old Ree Dolly (Jennifer Lawrence, The Burning Plain) as she confronts the local criminal underworld and the harsh Ozark wilderness in order to track down her father, who has put up the family homestead for his bail. Featuring a star-making performance by Lawrence, Winter's Bone is one of the most-critically acclaimed films of the year. Directed and co-written by Debra Granik.
