    I saw WINTER’S BONE at Sundance.
    Didn’t really want to see it but I was already at Eccles so I figured, Why not?
    THANK GOODNESS!
    It was an incredible film with terrific acting.
    Jennifer Lawrence is a star in the making.
    If WINTER’S BONE comes to your area, see it.
    You will not be disappointed.

        Thanks for the heads up! A lot of my friends missed it when it was in town.

  • gah

    i was so not impressed with the kids are alright. yes annette benning is great in it but i found it offensive that there is finally a movie about a lesbian couple where every conversation is not about “oh my goodness we are lesbians!” and no one was struggling with their sexuality then you have one of them cheat with a man. hmm. that really bugged me.
