Winter's Bone Wins at Sundance

Winter's Bone, the project of the May 2009 6-week class, won the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance 2010 film festival. Eric Kohn of indieWIRE, writes that the film is "An elegant, soft spoken noir," and the characters' conflicts of interests "…places the drama in such a meditative world that the antagonism morphs into a tone poem with random inflections of genre conventions." And Justin Chang of Variety writes that Winter's Bone is "…utterly enveloping." The film was directed by Debra Granik, written by Granik and Anne Rosellini (Down to the Bone, Sundance 2004) and edited by TEC instructor Affonso Gonçalves, who was assisted by TEC alums Naomi Goodman and Tory Stewart.
