Will (Ben Foster) and his teenage daughter, Tom (Thomasin Harcourt McKenzie), have lived off the grid for years in the forests of Portland, Oregon. When their idyllic life is shattered, both are put into social services. After clashing with their new surroundings, Will and Tom set off on a harrowing journey back to their wild homeland. Directed by Debra Granik (Winter’s Bone). From the official website
“Leave No Traceis, like Bone, a small-scale, atmospheric character-driven piece with a young woman at the centre that explores issues of family bonds, parental responsibility, and the challenges faced in a life with minimal resources. It features strong performances from lead Ben Foster and newcomer Thomasin Harcourt McKenzie as a father-daughter pair - Will and Tom - who are living off the grid in a vast nature reserve on the edge of Portland, Oregon.” Eye for Film
“This is a film that appeals to an intelligent audience and one who appreciates arthouse films and powerful emotional journeys. Production elements are excellent and I love the denseness of the green forest that has been home to this father and daughter, which in turn reflects the denseness of their relationship.” Urban Cinefile
“A beautifully shot, coming-of-age road movie that's refreshingly free from the usual "traumatised veteran" tropes and anchored by excellent performances from the leads that linger long in the memory.” Radio Times
