LEAVE NO TRACE
Nominated for three Film Independent Spirit Awards (Best Feature, Best Director and Best Supporting Actress), and winner of the Los Angeles Film Critics Association Best Director Award, as well as the National Board of Review's Breakthrough Performance Award (Thomasin McKenzie), LEAVE NO TRACE is the rare film that unites critics and audiences across the board. It currently boasts a very rare 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Will (Ben Foster) and his teenage daughter, Tom (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. Academy Award®-nominated director Debra Granik (WINTER'S BONE) returns for her first narrative feature since discovering Jennifer Lawrence in 2010 with a young lead who delivers an equally powerful breakout performance. (Note adapted from Bleecker Street Media.) DIR/SCR Debra Granik; SCR/PROD Anne Rosellini, from the novel "My Abandonment" by Peter Rock; PROD Anne Harrison, Linda Reisman. U.S., 2018, color, 109 min.
