What the critics are saying, “Winter’s Bone received widespread critical acclaim. Review aggregate Rotten Tomatoes reports that 95% of critics have given the film a positive review based on 148 reviews, for an average score of 8.3/10.[3] Among Rotten Tomatoes’ “Top Critics”, which consists of notable critics from the top newspapers and websites,[4] the film also holds an overall approval rating of 94%, based on a sample of 31 reviews.[5] The site’s consensus is that “Bleak, haunting, and yet still somehow hopeful, Winter’s Bone is writer-director Debra Granik’s best work yet—and it boasts an incredible, starmaking performance from Jennifer Lawrence.”[5] Metacritic, which assigns aweighted average score out of 1–100 reviews from film critics, reports a rating score of 90 based on 35 reviews, with the film in the “universal acclaim” category.[6]Reviewer Peter Travers found the film “unforgettable”, stating “Granik handles this volatile, borderline horrific material with unblinking ferocity and feeling” and “In Lawrence, Granik has found just the right young actress to inhabit Ree. Her performance is more than acting, it’s a gathering storm.”[7] Web based critic James Berardinelli said that “Winter’s Bone is a welcome reminder that thrillers don’t have to be loud and boisterous to grab the attention and keep it captive.”[8] David Edelstein stated “For all the horror, it’s the drive toward life, not the decay, that lingers in the mind. As a modern heroine, Ree Dolly has no peer, and Winter’s Bone is the year’s most stirring film.”[9] New Yorker critic David Denby called Winter’s Bone “one of the great feminist works in film.” [10]
