DOWN TO THE BONE
If you want to see what kind of movie director, Debra Granik, makes before WINTER"S BONE comes out, take a look at this little gem from 2004. It's a downer and since it's set in upstate New York in winter, also depressing, but Vera Farmiga should have received some awards for her portrayal of a druggie Mom trying to get it together. You love her, you hate her, you can't take your eyes off of her.
And it is so easy to see why Granik would be attracted to WINTER'S BONE after this. The locations might be separated by miles but not by circumstances.
