Winter's Bone

a beautiful movie on many levels.
kinship, clan, crystal meth and above all, What Is.
the young heroine stays the path
avoids the pitfalls
goes through the trials
she does not have a scar on her forehead
well actually maybe she does by the end!
all in the stark color-richness of
children's book paintings.
if only Howard Frank Mosher's books
could have been movified so well.
if you thought the beans of egypt maine was
a depressing book, instead of a book about
real people and their lives, skip this movie!
i don't live in the ozarks, 
yet i know these people -
some of them are my neighbors.
