Winter's Bone (2010)
A drama directed by Debra Granik, based on the book by Daniel Woodrell.
A teenage girl is taking care of her younger siblings and her sick mother in the absence of the father. When "the law" comes by to let her know that she will lose her house if nobody finds out what happened to her father, she goes looking for him.
The setting was great and so were the characters and plot. It was very well put together and not a big, flashy Hollywood bullshit-fest. This is what good films are made of. It conveys an idea and a feeling, so I'm rating it awesome. The only thing I didn't like is that it ended too soon. I wanted to watch more good movie!
