Winter’s Bone

Jennifer Lawrence puts in a staggeringly good performance as a teenager looking for her bail-jumping dad in Debra Granik’s superb drama. An enthralling rites-of-passage film that wisely takes its time to unfold, this marks the
arrival of a prodigiously talented actress.


Good for: Those who like slow-burning dramas.
