Remember Cary Grant‘s irritation in Bringing Up Baby when Katharine Hepburn told her mother that his name is “Mr. Bone”? In that light, Winter’s Bone, Debra Granik‘s dramatic competition entry, is arguably the strangest-sounding and most unintriguing title among all the films showing at Sundance 2010. (The other contender for this prize is Restrepo, Sebastian Junger and Tim Hetherington‘s doc about an Iraq War veteran.)

But MSN’s James Rocchi assures that Granik’s film ranks very high on his list and that I should make every effort. My next and only remaining shot at seeing it will be at the Racquet Club on Tuesday at 8:30 am. Granik’s last film was the memorable Down to the Bone (which included a break-out performance by Vera Farmiga), so she obviously has a thing about that word.
