Winter's Bone Jennifer Lawrence wowed critics with her Oscar-baiting turn as a young woman living in the Ozarks who is determined to save her family’s home after her deadbeat drug-dealer dad skips out. She sets out to track him down via his menacing, nearly psychopathic backwoods relatives. What’s mesmerizing about this film isn’t just Lawrence’s star-making performance, but also director Debra Granik’s ability to show these people’s lives without making it a laughable caricature. Extras: Audio commentary with Granik, making-of featurette.
New on DVD: ‘Winter's Bone,’ ‘SATC 2,’ ‘The Girl Who Played With Fire
