Movie Review -"Winter Bones"

Life in the Deep South. I don't mean geographically but the DEEP south where people are poor, families inbred, living in poverty like they always have and striving to eke out a living doing things that are outside the law.

Ree Dolly is a "bred & butter" Dolly and she is going to do what ever she has to to find her outlaw father and see that his bond is fulfilled and save the family home.

To do this she has to face the other Dollys who are not willing to help her.

The stirring part of this film is the strength of the hillbilly's women as they stand by their men and stand together to solve the problems they face, legal or not.

This is a REAL feminist film. Great acting. Actors unknown to me. And use of locals makes a true Indie film.

At The Loft, the busiest I have ever seen it. Thank you Loft.
