“Winter’s Bone”

I watched the movie “Winter’s Bone” last night. It’s a story of a 17 year old girl who takes care of her sick mother and her very young brother and sister. Her mom suffers from depression. They live somewhere in the Ozark mountains. I would say somewhere in the boondocks. The thing is, if you think you got it bad you need check this movie out….Her dad was arrested for building a Methamphetamine lab and puts up the family home as collateral for bond to get out of jail then promptly disappears before his court date. She has about a week to find dad or she and her mom will lose the house and become homeless. Its more like a cabin in the woods….Set in the winter and being a responsible 17 year old. A rare find these days. I might add. She sets out to find her missing dad…. This young lady is very brave in this drug infested backwoods community, to say the least…The lead is played by actress Jennifer Lawrence. Very convincing and bright she will be a big hit in the future…This is by far the best movie I have seen this year….Don’t miss it...

Yes, the Giants did win yesterday.....
