Winter’s Bone (2010)

Directed by Debra Granik. After her drug-dealing father disappears, Ree Dolly (Jennifer Lawrence) becomes the caretaker of her family. A sheriff tells her that her father has put up their home as bond, and if she doesn’t find him before his court date, they could lose everything. Braving the criminal underworld and breaking her community’s code of silence, Ree fights to preserve her family. This is the first of ten films directed by women the Library will show this season.
