We watched the indie Winter's Bone last night on Netflix, and recommend it. Carol likes the movie reviews that Christianity Today publishes, and Winter's Bone was among CT's category of Most Redeeming Films of 2010. Carol warned me away from the review as we sat down to watch the movie, and I appreciated being able to see it unfold without any idea of where it was going.
Jennifer Lawrence plays the lead, and is terrific. She is Katniss in Hunger Games. (I'm about to finish the third volume of that trilogy.) I can see why she was recruited for the role, after seeing Winter's Bone.
