The film was nominated for a number of UsefulNotes/{{Academy Award}}s including Best Picture, despite its modest commercial success and lack of star power - at the time. Jennifer Lawrence was still fairly unknown.

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationExplanationExtrication: Ree and Little Arthur's attitude towards each other makes more sense if you've read the book and know that [[spoiler: Little Arthur drugged and raped her before the events of the plot]]. The flashback scene where this is shown was AdaptedOut but the characters still act in a way that in a way that implies it. It is also never specifically stated in the film that [[spoiler: Milton is Sonny's father]] though dialogue later in the movie alludes to it.
