A reminder to see "Winter's Bone"

It tops critic David Edelstein's list for the year. The full Fresh Air story is here. The part about "Winter's Bone" follows:
A "harshly beautiful" adaptation of Daniel Woodrell's Ozark noir novel tops Edelstein's list. "This is a film that could so easily be this dreary, depressing, regional-realistic kind of movie," he says. "But [Debra] Granik pushes it to the point where it achieves a mythical intensity. I think it's a gorgeous, beautiful movie. There are a lot of people who say 'Oh, it's so depressing.' I think it's absolutely exhilarating movie, managing to be so hopeful in the midst of such horror."
See my earlier posts about the film here, here and here.
