Eight years after wowing us with her breakout hit Winter's Bone, director Debra Granik returns with this riveting and tender father-daughter story. 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.
"A triumphant return. Granik films with subtlety and quiet grace, but Leave No Trace explodes in the mind. McKenzie is staggeringly good." (Bilge Ebiri, Village Voice)
Each month, Ragtag and the Citizen Jane Film Festival spotlight a woman-directed film. Leave No Trace is July’s Citizen Jane Suggests selection.
