More information about the book

The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Roadside Attractions has acquired the North American rights to the film adaptation of Daniel Woodrell's 2006 novel Winter's Bone. The film took the Grand Jury Prize for US Dramatic Film at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival.

"With Winter's Bone, [director] Debra Granik has crafted a classic detective story, a nail-biting thriller and an unbelievably touching family drama, all in one film," said Roadside's Dustin Smith. "It's everything Sundance is about. It's everything independent film is about. And it's everything I go to the movies for."

About Winter's Bone (from the studio): Deep in the Ozark Mountains, clans live by a code of conduct that no one dares defy—until an intrepid teenage girl has no other choice. When Ree Dolly's crystal-meth-making father skips bail and goes missing, her family home is on the line. Unless she finds him, she and her young siblings and disabled mother face destitution. In a heroic quest, Ree traverses the county to confront her kin, break their silent collusion, and bring her father home.
