Debra Granik introduced Jennifer Lawrence to the world in Winter’s Bone in 2010 (above), but unlike Lawrence, who has gone on to star in several blockbuster films, Granik prefers to avoid Hollywood’s sway and remain rooted in realism.Born in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Granik grew up in the suburbs of Washington D.C.

“First of all, I want you to know that none of this is ­­ in any way ­­ your fault.”The doctor was being very sincere and looked me in the eyes as he said this.
