This is the video trailer for a new movie called Winter’s Bone, which is available to watch in theaters on limited release from this weekend.
Winter’s Bone won both the Grand Jury Prize and the Screenwriting Award at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival. It looks like a must-see for anyone who prefers their movies to have a little intelligence.
The film tels the story of a teenage woman trying to find her drug-addicted father before the family home gets taken away from them. She has to make tough decisions, and explore places she’d rather not explore.
Winter’s Bone is dark, moody, and atmospheric. It’s loved by the critics, although some have criticized the often hard-to-watch nature of the film.
This is clearly no popcorn movie. But that isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
