The Oswego Film Group (OFG) continues its Best of the Festivals series with a free screening at 7 PM on Tuesday, November 23 of Winter’s Bone in the Community Room of the Oswego Public Library (120 East Second Street). A discussion will follow the film.
Set deep in the Ozarks, Winter’s Bone is Ree Dolly’s story. Seventeen-year-old Ree (played by Jennifer Lawrence in a stunning performance) takes it upon herself to track down her father. Following his arrest for manufacturing crystal meth, he’s vanished after putting the family’s house up for bond; if her father fails to show up in court, Ree, her mother, brother, and sister will lose the very little they have.
Based on the acclaimed novel by Daniel Woodrell, Winter’s Bone was awarded the Grand Jury Prize for Best Picture (as well as the Waldo Salt Award for Best Screenplay) at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. Winter’s Bone is director Debra Granik’s second feature; her 2004 film Down to the Bone won the Best Director’s prize at Sundance.
Winter’s Bone runs 100 minutes and is rated R [See Full Rating]for some drug material, language and violent content. The film’s website is http://www.wintersbonemovie.com/
