Movie: Winter's Bone

This movie is excellent. It is a story about a young 17 year old girl who must take care of her mentally ill mother and two (much) younger siblings. Her father has put the house in rural Kentucky up for collateral on the bond that he received and has now skipped out on the bond. Thus, an ominous warning from the Sheriff forces our heroine to go searching for her ne'er do well father. Only it turns out that daddy was involved with some very dubious people and some very dubious activities, but the children and her mother have no where else to turn so she does what she must.

A very human and detail oriented drama. It also shows people in a fascinating light. I highly recommend it but not for children.
