I read and reviewed Winter’s Bone, by Daniel Woodrell last year and I thought it was one of the most gripping and chilling novels that I had ever read, and it was a YA novel at that!
I had heard rumblings at the time that it was going to be made into a movie, and in fact before I even heard that, I was trying to interest in one of my filmmaker friends. I told him he should read the book, but he wouldn’t listen.
Anyway, the movie is here, and wow, does the trailer look good. I am very curious to see the big screen translation and, I may have to sneak over to the movies during Bloggiesta this weekend. Winter’s Bone is in theaters, Friday, June 11.
