"Winter's Bone" is a 2010 drama film starring Jennifer Lawrence, John Hawkes and Garret Dillahunt.

"Winter's Bone" tells the story of 17-year-old Ree Dolly (Jennifer Lawrence), a headstrong young woman who must set out to track down her fugitive father, who put their house up for his bail bond and then disappeared. If she fails, Ree and her vulnerably family will be turned out into the Ozark woods. Challenging her outlaw kin's code of silence and risking her life, Ree hacks through the lies, evasions, and threats offered up by her relatives and begins to piece together the truth.

Based on the neo-noir novel by Daniel Woodrell, "Winter's Bone" is directed by Debra Granik ("Down to the Bone") and adapted for the screen by Granik and Anne Rosellini. The "Winter's Bone" cast includes Jennifer Lawrence, John Hawkes, Kevin Brezahan, Dale Dickey, Garret Dillahunt, Sheryl Lee, and Tate Taylor.

"Winter's Bone" was an official selection of the 2010 Sundance Film Festival's Dramatic Competition, and received four Academy Award nominations, for Best Picture, Best Leading Actress (Jennifer Lawrence), Best Supporting Actor (John Hawkes), and Best Adapted Screenplay.
