Winter's Bone

Has anyone seen this movie yet? It's gotten tons of great reviews!

From Sam Thielman's review in World...

Ree, beautifully played by Jennifer Lawrence, is a movie heroine like none I've seen....Her closest fictional relation is probably Batman...

There have been maybe a dozen neo-Westerns in the last few years, some of them tremendously accomplished. You can probably add Winter's Bone to that list. What this movie has that can't be found in [those] though, is an old-fashioned heart....

What Ree ultimately has to do in order to safeguard her family is something you'd probably only see in a Greek tragedy (the movie is rated R for violence and some swearing). But when we see her with her sister and brother, we understand why all the pain and effort were worth it.
