Winter's Bone out on Blu-Ray this week31 January 2011 15:22:02
Acclaimed drama Winter's Bone come to Blu-Ray in the UK this Tuesday (February 1st).
The film, based on Daniel Woodrell's 2006 novel of the same name, stars Jennifer Lawrence as Ree Dolly, a young woman who lives with her family among the isolated communities of the Ozark mountains.
She embarks on a quest to find her missing deadbeat dad who must appear at a court case in order to avoid the family losing their home, which has been posted as bail.
Her journey sees Ree negotiate the dangerous poverty-stricken community which has come to depend on the manufacture of methamphetamines for income and is unwilling to answer questions about Ree's missing father.
Commenting on the Blu-Ray release, Guardian reviewer Phelim O'Neill said: "Lawrence delivers a performance devoid of grandstanding; she deserves her Oscar nomination.
"She's so unassuming and believable that it's tempting to conclude she's just like her character, carrying the film by default, because no one else will.
"The disc includes a Making Of that's as captivating as the film, plus an unusually informative director's commentary."
