"The Kentucky Cycle" outreach series by Bainbridge Performing Arts continues with the film screening of “Winter’s Bone” this week at the Bainbridge Public Library.

The film will be shown during a free screening at 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 5.

The 2010 award-winning film is set in modern day rural Kentucky. It is a bleakly realistic drama about a community decimated by poverty and hopelessness, yet bound together by deep ties of class, gender and blood.

Like "The Kentucky Cycle," the movie examines a culture where people set their own rules and keep to themselves. The film stars Jennifer Lawrence and is rated R for some drug material, language and violent content.

The screening is part of the outreach series for "The Kentucky Cycle," a Pulitzer Prize-winning play that will be presented by Bainbridge Performing Arts in two parts March 14–30.

Kate Carruthers, who will direct the BPA production of the play, will introduce the film audience to "The Kentucky Cycle." Patrick Gulke, the library’s film expert, will moderate the post-film discussion of "Winter’s Bone."
