Synopsis: In this moving story based on the novel by Daniel Woodrell, seventeen-year-old Ree Dolly played by Jennifer Lawrence sets out to track down her father, who put their house up for his bail bond and then disappeared. If she fails, Ree and her family will be turned out into the Ozark woods. Challenging her outlaw kin’s code of silence and risking her life, Ree hacks through the lies, evasions and threats offered up by her relatives and begins to piece together the truth. An extraordinary story, shot in the Ozarks that remains true to life in this part of the country.
