Winter’s Bone

I didn’t know much about this movie going in other than it was nominated for a few Academy Awards including one for best picture. After viewing it I don’t understand why. I get the acting nominations but that’s about all it had going for it. The pacing was slow and not a lot happened. I feel like it was a short that was dragged out to feature length and the strong performances and a few powerful scenes overshadowed the poor execution by the film makers. I expect near perfection for best picture nominations and this wasn’t even close. I’m interested to read the script since that was nominated as well and see if it deserves more credit than the final product does.
