Short and Sweet Review by WubsTheFadger
The acting all around is quite good. The exception is that of Jennifer Lawrence's character. I have never seen Jennifer as a good actress, she has a very boring, mellow, and dry acting style that gets old after a while. Some of her lines sounded like she was reading off of a page. Her character has no depth and she did not have any redeeming factors or qualities at all.
The story is deathly slow. Most of the movie is very boring. The premise is good but the execution is bad. The story is not bad but it could have been handled a little bit better.
The Ozark scenery is the only redeeming factor in this film. The cinematography is beautiful at times.
Pros: Great cinematography, some good acting, interesting story
Cons: Jennifer Lawrence's performance, a large amount of boring moments during the film, bad pacing, poor execution in regard to the story

With an absent father and a withdrawn and depressed mother, 17 year-old Ree Dolly keeps her family together in a dirt poor rural area. She's taken aback however when the local Sheriff tells her that her father put up their house as collateral for his bail and unless he shows up for his trial in a week's time, they will lose it all. She knows her father is involved in the local drug trade and manufactures crystal meth, but everywhere she goes the message is the same: stay out of it and stop poking your nose in other people's business. She refuses to listen, even after her father's brother, Teardrop, tells her he's probably been killed. She pushes on, putting her own life in danger, for the sake of her family until the truth, or enough of it, is revealed.
