I just saw Winter's Bone, a critically lauded film that's likely to get lost in the shuffle. With no stars, no car chases and a rough plot about sad people, it's a tough sell.

The story features a teenage girl in the Ozarks (filmed on location) searching for her father, who skipped bail after being arrested for cooking meth.

One of the women the girl runs into is portrayed by Dale Dickey, who's known for playing the skanky junkie in Breaking Bad. I have to wonder, whenever there's a plot about meth do they automatically call her?

PS She's best known as the prostitute on My Name Is Earl, so she gets to play all sorts of roles.
