Leave No Trace

"A deeply intelligent story of love and survival in the wild" ★★★★★ Guardian

Showing Times

“A tale of a father and daughter living off the grid in the forests of the Pacific north-west of the US proves the perfect material for Winter’s Bone director Debra Granik. Renowned for her empathetic portrayal of marginalised outsiders, Granik here conjures a low-key drama about cultural and generational divides that is alternately gripping and melancholic, but always shot through with the unmistakable ring of truth. The result is work of overwhelming, understated power that quite simply took my breath away.

“At the centre of it all is Thomasin Harcourt McKenzie, the rising New Zealand star who combines the astonishing technical skills of a young Jennifer Lawrence with the wide-eyed naturalism of David (“Dai”) Bradley in Kes. Watching Leave No Trace, we feel as though we are watching her 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.” Mark Kermode, Observer

This film is F-Rated, meaning it has a female writer/director and also a significant female lead character.
