Will, an Iraq War veteran suffering from PTSD (Ben Foster), andhis thirteen-year-old daughter, Tom (Thomasin McKenzie)live off the grid in the forests of the US Pacific North-West in a beautiful nature reserve near Portland, Oregon. Rarely making contact with the outside world, they live a perfect but mysterious existence, until a small mistake tips them off to authorities, and they are sent on an increasingly erratic journey in search of a new place to call their own.
LEAVE NO TRACE is directed by Debra Granik whose previous film was the multi-award winning Winter’s Bonewhich starred Jennifer Lawrence in her first major role. At the centre of Granik’s latest is rising New Zealand star, newcomer ThomasinMcKenzie.
“ Watching LEAVE NO TRACE, we feel as though we are watching her (McKenzie) grow up before our eyes; her pain, courage and compassion are tangible and real. It’s a pitch-perfect performance around which Granik builds her flawless, deeply affecting film. The result is work of overwhelming, understated power that quite simply took my breath away “Mark Kermode, The Observer.
A sympathetic, affecting, beautifully realised portrait of lives lived on the margins.
Ian Freer, Empire.
Irresistible tale of one man's attempt to escape modern life
