Winter’s Bone by Debra Granik – Review

Debra Granik has given the movie-going public a damn good adaptation of a great book.  In fact, the Nerd would argue that she did about as good a job as could ever be expected with her impeccable source material: Daniel Woodrell’s fucking ridiculously read-that-shit-right-fucking-now book Winter’s Bone.  If I hadn’t read the book already...
