Bread and Butter
Greetings again from the darkness. A double award winner at the Sundance Film Festival, this film is based on Daniel Woodrell’s novel and is directed by Debra Granik. It’s opening sequence slaps the viewer with the bleak unforgivingness of life in the backwoods of the Ozarks. This is land of people that time has passed by.
The basic premise of the story is that 17 year old Ree Dolly (played by Jennifer Lawrence) is responsible for raising her brother and sister and caring for her mentally-blank mother while maintaining a mostly positive outlook on the present and future. Reality strikes again when the local sheriff arrives to inform her that her missing, meth-lab running father has an upcoming court date. He used their land and house as collateral for his latest bond. If he fails to show, they will lose their home. Instead of breaking down, Ree pledges to find him and starts out on a hazardous journey, unlike we have seen on screen.
This community of mountain people are distrusting of outsiders, but stunningly, are just as paranoid around insiders and even family members. Their way of life seems to depend on pure independence, even though they all seemed intertwined in the same illegal activities and daily quest for survival. Some kind of odd code exists – ask nothing, give nothing and get rid of any obstacles.
The driving forces of the story are Ree and her constant hope and courage, and her bond to her dad’s only brother, Teardrop played chillingly by John Hawkes. Teardrop tries to toughen up Ree and get her to accept her plight, while Ree constantly shows his there is reason to plow forward.
The film is very well written and the local filming brings a harsh reality that was crucial to the film’s success. Additionally, I was stunned at the fierceness displayed by Jennifer Lawrence as Ree. Her performance reminded me of my first exposure to the talents of Meryl Streep (The Deer Hunter) and Evan Rachel Wood (Thirteen). Talk about powerful and exciting … what she did with this role vaults her immediately into a very small group of actresses who can carry a movie with their presence. I am anxiously awaiting her next appearance – a Jody Foster project.
I also want to mention the music in the film. The vocalist, Marideth Sisco, is also the vocalist in the living room band who makes an appearance in one scene. Her voice truly captures the balance of hope and acceptance of plight. This is not a movie for everyone, but it is fascinating and hardcore.
I only really heard about this film when it was nominated the numerous awards, it was obviously not one of the films that would have as much as The King’s Speech, Black Swan, 127 Hours and the others, but it looked like something to be tried. Basically Ree Dolly (Oscar and Golden Globe nominated Jennifer Lawrence) is the seventeen year old girl living in the Ozark back country, forced into looking after her two younger siblings, twelve year old Sonny (Isaiah Stone) and six year old Ashlee (Ashlee Thompson) due to her mother being depressed, mentally ill and catatonic and her father Jessup absent. The father is a known Methamphetamine ‘meth’ cooker, and according to the local Sheriff Baskin (Garret Dillahunt) he is due in court in a week, and it is also revealed he has put the family home up as collateral for his bail, so if he is not found they will lose it all. So Ree starts a journey to find her father, dead or alive, in order that she and the remaining family can stay, and knowing that he is involved in the drug trade she starts by asking all others involved. She asks many of the locals, and her father’s brother Teardrop (Oscar nominated John Hawkes), who all claim that they have no idea where Jessup is or what has happened, and at one point she is warned away and threatened if she returns. Of course Ree ignores the warning, and as a consequence she is brutally beaten by three women of the clan, they had discussed killing her but they cannot find it themselves to do it. After pleading her case, Teardrop comes to the rescue and assures the drug involved clan that she does not want to make trouble, and the region’s patriarch, Thump Milton (Ronnie Hall) is satisfied enough to let her go ahead. When it looks like Ree and the children are going to lose their home, in desperation she tries to join the army in order to be paid the $40,000 for five years service, but she is refused and she changes her mind due to her situation. One night, the three Milton women who beat her finally reveal they may in fact know what has happened to Jessup, and blindfolded she is taken to a pond where rumours of a body have been spread. Paddling in a rowboat to a shallow part, they do indeed find a pair of arms belonging to a dead arm, and Ree is forced to hold them while they chainsaw through to take the hands to the police. In the end, DNA evidence confirms they are the hands of a dead Jessup, the family are allowed to keep the house, Teardrop gives away his brother’s old banjo, and the final scene sees Ree on the porch with her siblings and the new instrument. Also starring Kevin Breznahan as Little Arthur, Dale Dickey as Merab, Sheryl Lee as April, Lauren Sweetser as Gail, Tate Taylor as Satterfield, Valerie Richards as Connie, Shelley Waggener as Sonya, William White as Blond Milton and Casey MacLaren as Megan. Lawrence gives a superb mature performance as the struggling girl doing whatever she can to keep her home, and Hawkes does alright as her father’s brother, it is rather a gripping story with many eye-catching moments, especially the nasty beating scene, it is certainly a thriller to see. It was nominated the Oscars for Best Motion Picture of the Year and Best Writing, Screenplay Based on Material Previously Produced or Published. Very good!
