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

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

One small movie, at least two un­for­get­table char­ac­ters and, for the viewer, a free pass into the cul­ture of the Mis­souri back­woods, where fam­ily se­crets fes­ter and a de­fin­i­tive so­cial struc­ture emerges. Jen­nifer Lawrence was nom­i­nated for an Academy Award for her role as Ree, a young wo­man in search of her fa­ther so she can keep the other frag­ments of her fam­ily to­gether. Among the char­ac­ters she must face is the Teardrop (John Hawkes). De­bra Granik’s film shone out from last’s year usual dross.
