One of the many movies premiering at Sundance is director Debra Granik’s (Down to the Bone) Winter’s Bone.  The film stars Jennifer Lawrence, John Hawkes, Dale Dickey, Garret Dillahunt, Sheryl Lee, and Tate Taylor and it focuses on the dangerous efforts of an Ozard Mountain girl to track down her drug-dealer father while keeping her family intact.  At least that’s what IMDb says about it.

While I never got the chance to see Granik’s last film (Down to the Bone), I’ve heard from people it’s great.  Also, Vera Farmiga said during a recent interview that it’s her best work. Based on that, I’m planning on seeing Winter’s Bone when I’m at Sundance.

But if you’re not going to Park City, or you just want an early look at the film, hit the jump as we’ve been provided with seven clips.  Also, I’ve posted a more detailed synopsis.

Here’s the more detailed synopsis from the Sundance website:

Deep in the Ozark Mountains, clans live by a code of conduct that no one dares defy-until an intrepid teenage girl has no other choice. When Ree Dolly’s crystal-meth-making father skips bail and goes missing, her family home is on the line. Unless she finds him, she and her young siblings and disabled mother face destitution. In a heroic quest, Ree traverses the county to confront her kin, break their silent collusion, and bring her father home.

With thrilling tension, Winter’s Bone depicts an archetypal rite of passage from adolescence to adulthood. Only this time, the young warrior is a girl. As our heroine braves immoveable obstacles, she redefines the notion of family loyalty and, in the process, discovers her own power. The spare precision of Debra Granik’s direction is effortlessly profound. Stunningly genuine performances and exquisite visual details capture the textures and rhythms of a world where the mythic and the naturalistic intermingle.
