Toni invites Karen to stay with her and her boyfriend Luke (Max Thieriot) while she’s looking for a place to live, but Karen isn’t sure if she’s ready to face the outside world yet.

Things start to go wrong when Karen starts seeing strange things happening around her. First, there’s the incident with the dog – which Luke claims happened because Karen threw some paint at it. Then there’s the strange graffiti that starts showing up all over town…words that make no sense whatsoever. Finally, there are sightings of a woman matching Karen’s description who seems to be heading in the direction of Greendale…and she appears to be carrying something very dangerous in her hand!

The film follows Ree Dolly (Jennifer Lawrence), an 18-year-old girl who has been living on her family’s farm since she was 10 years old. When her father is arrested for drug trafficking, Ree has to find a way to support her family and keep them safe.

To make ends meet, Ree takes whatever odd jobs she can get – even working as a prostitute. But one day, she gets a job as a bone collector for a wealthy man named Walter White (Bryan Cranston). Walters is sick and he needs someone to dig up his bones so he can have them treated by a specialist. Ree reluctantly agrees, but soon finds out that this job is much more complex than she thought it would be.

Winter’s Bone is an incredibly powerful and moving film that will stay with you long after you’ve watched it. It sheds light on the harsh realities of life in rural America and the lengths people will go to survive. Jennifer Lawrence provides an outstanding performance as Ree Dolly, and Bryan Cranston gives an unforgettable performance as Walter White.

And there you have it. All the movies Jen has starred in and turned out to be blockbuster successes. The news of her new movie ‘Red Sparrow’ releasing on 22 March made headlines last year, but it is not as big a deal now when we have seen the collections of most of these movies!

As per Forbes’ calculations, Red Sparrow will easily gross over USD 50 million during its opening weekend at the box office, which is a healthy start for Jennifer Lawrence’s latest venture.
