Winter’s Bone=Summer Smash

I haven’t been this excited/bothered by the Ozark Mountains since Where the Red Fern Grows. The New Yorker calls Winter’s Bone, the Sundance Award–winning film (Best Picture, 2010) based on Daniel Woodrell’s 2006 book about drugs, crime and family secrets in the Missouri Ozarks, “something new in movies: a ‘country-noir’ thriller.” It’s high-brow indy meets low-brow backwoodsy South meets the Angelika. I like it.
