Winter's Bone - True Grit    (2011-10-11)
In every community, there are rules. Even for an outlaw with connections by blood there are rules that must be followed, a code of conduct that must be maintained. Sometimes, and eventually people are just human after all...then what becomes of the code?
Winter's Bone is a perfect depiction of what that looks like and how one decision causes ripples throughout a community. The definitions of courage, loyalty, love, decency, survival, common sense and shear luck are tested to the point of ripping the very core of one seventeen year old girl...
Winter's Bone ripped at my heart, and tore at my very soul. This movie dared me to imagine what it might be like to be faced with seemingly insurmountable odds with no help to speak of... would I have the soul and heart to push on? I don't know the answer to that question, but I am glad to have seen this movie. Winter's Bone FORCED me to look at that possible scenario, made me "feel" something for a lifestyle that is foreign to me. Winter's Bone showed me a terrain within myself that I did not know existed, another dimension...
Winter's Bone is a must see for every age group and every social economic background! Myself, I will be watching it again and again and again!
