Saw this movie yesterday, and was blown away. Part social drama, part thriller, with an outstanding cast, brillantly lead by the amazing Jennifer Lawrence. Tough, sweet and not to play with. I also liked John Hawkes very much, the great cinematography. A powerful, thoughtful film which leaves you thinking a lot about it afterwards.
Until today, I didn't realize that a soundtrack had been issued for WINTER'S BONE. (It came out about 4 months after the film had gone into general release.) It's actually two soundtracks. One has the Ozark songs, primarily sung by vocalist Marideth Sisco, backed by various instrumentalists. The other release has the fiddle-infused instrumental score by Dickon Hinchliffe. Unfortunately, only the song score is on CD. The instrumental score is a download only. Samples of the instrumental score are here:
