Winter's Bone up for a ton of Independent Spirit Awards
Best Actress for Jennifer Lawrence
Best Cinematography for Michael McDonough
Best Director for Granik
Best Screenplay for Granik and Anne Rosellini
Best Supporting actor for John Hawkes
Best Supporting actress for Dale Dickey
Another reason to see the film is the excellent music by Dickon Hinchliffe. Hopefully this award season will see a few wins and especially an Oscar nomination or two. The Academy Awards don't mean a whole lot to me, but the extra exposure they bring would be nice for this gem of a film. My brief review can be found here.
Winter's Bone is based on the novel written by Daniel Woodrell.. I read the first ten pages last night, and it's oh so good.
