Seventeen-year-old Ree Dolly sets out to track down her father who put their house up for his bail bond and then disappeared. If she fails to find him, she 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.

Opinion

From Library Staff

Reaching her sixteenth year in the harsh Ozarks while caring for her poverty-stricken family, Ree learns that they will lose their house unless her bail-skipping father can be found and made to appear at an upcoming court date. (Also a book written by Daniel Woodrell)

Dark and semi-disturbing but I really liked it. The characters were quite believable. As a long ago police dispatcher this movie about a rural, poor, southern Missouri community is a very realistic description of life.

A great job by Jennifer Lawrence in a realistic and scaringly compelling movie set in the Ozarks. This one is not upbeat but riveting nonetheless.

A beautiful haunting film. This movie takes place in a setting that most of us are not very familiar with (Appalachia) which adds to the interest. It is so sad to see the poverty and family problems in this familty, it really strikes home. You really want to root for the main girl in the film for her to find some salvation for her family and closure on her missing father. Great music and performances. Note that this is certainly not a movie all will enjoy. It is dark and gloomy and many of the characters in the movie are not likable but that is on purpose and really adds to the realism.
