(St. Louis, MO â€“ June 10, 2010) Winterâ€™s Bone, a movie filmed in Southwest, MO, opens throughout the Midwest Friday, June 18, 2010.
Winterâ€™s Bone follows 17-year-old Ree Dolly as she sets out to track down her father who put their house up for his bail bond, then disappeared. If her quest fails, her family will be turned out into the Ozark woods. Challenging her outlaw kinâ€™s code of silence and risking her life, Ree hacks through the lies, evasions and threats offered by her relatives and pieces together the truth.
An exerpt from Sarah Boslaugh’s interview with Director Debra Granik during the Seattle Film Festival, “Finally, Iâ€™d like to give a shout-out to the Missouri Film Commission including Director Jerry Jones and Assistant Director Andrea Sporcic as well as the Missouri Tax Incentive Program, which was instrumental in having this film shot in Missouri rather than one of the other locations considered. Itâ€™s a Missouri story and a great film as well so everyone who helped make that happen should be proud.” – Debra Granik
