Jennifer Lawrence stars in this acclaimed film about a resilient young woman’s struggle to keep her family home.
Dir Debra Granik
With Jennifer Lawrence, John Hawkes, Garret Dillahunt
Granik’s chilling drama centres on Ree (Lawrence), a 17-year-old looking after her dirt-poor siblings and mother in the Ozarks. When she’s told they’re set to lose their home thanks to her drug-dealing father, she goes in search of him, despite the risks involved in navigating the local underworld. Authentically gritty and bleak, the film nevertheless exudes hope and determination, thanks to Lawrence’s fine performance.
