Fri­day 8.30pm, Movie One (MA15+) ★★★★

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - TV Guide - - Movie -

One small movie, at least two un­for­get­table char­ac­ters and, for view­ers, a free pass into the Mis­souri back­woods, where se­crets fes­ter and a de­fin­i­tive so­cial struc­ture emerges. Jen­nifer Lawrence was nom­i­nated for an Academy Award for her role as Ree, a woman in search of her fa­ther so she can keep the frag­ments of her fam­ily to­gether. Debra Granik’s film shone out from the usual dross last year and will con­tinue to stand up.
