Okay, over the weekend I saw the best movie I have seen yet this year. When you have the chance, go see “Winter’s Bone”. It is a stunning little drama with some outstanding performances and no missteps from a story-telling, film-making perspective. A year ago I came out of “The Hurt Locker” and said “this was the movie to beat in 2009”. Well, “Winter’s Bone” is the movie to beat in 2010. John Hawkes will be nominated for Best Actor – and unless someone comes out with a better performance before the end of the year, he’ll win it hands down.
