Synopsis 4 stars out of 4 -- LEAVE NO TRACE is, at times, heartbreaking, but it's also filled with glimpses of almost casual human kindness, throwaway moments of good will and inclusion piercing through what could be the bleakest of tales.Granik has made a film about the separate magnetic pulls of isolation and community....It’s a true story in which just about every element feels true: the relationships, the behavior, the crystal-clear vision of life on the cultural fringe of the Pacific Northwest. -- Grade: B+LEAVE NO TRACE leaves its traces everywhere: in your mind, in your heart, in your soul. Fiercely involving in a way we're not used to, made with sensitivity and honesty by director/co-writer Debra Granik, it tells its emotional story of a father and daughter living dangerously off the grid...3.5 stars out of 4 -- Granik lets glimmers of hope fight their way into her unflinching view of a broken America. That's what gives her hypnotic and haunting tale of letting go its quiet power and amazing grace.The director Debra Granik has a gift for cinematic spaces that are vibrantly, palpably alive, and for putting you in places, whether modest homes or the great outdoors, that make you feel as if you’re standing right alongside her characters.The filmmaker has crafted an unusual coming-of-age tale, in which a teen declares independence from her parent gradually, gingerly, with tact and consideration rather than rebelliousness.Though Granik’s approach is reminiscent of the sensitive, stripped-down style of Kelly Reichardt’s work, by reteaming with Scottish cinematographer Michael McDonough, she creates a richer visual environment in which to dwell.In Debra Granik’s quietly overpowering drama LEAVE NO TRACE, the rangy, composed 13-year-old girl played by Thomasin Harcourt McKenzie has a way of looking back from where she’s come that just about breaks your heart.4 stars out of 5 -- As the dutiful daughter who gradually comes of age, New Zealand-born actress McKenzie delivers a powerful turn, one worthy of comparison with Jennifer Lawrence’s Oscar-nommed breakout in WINTER'S BONE.4 stars out of 5 -- [T]his is a sympathetic, affecting, beautifully realised portrait of lives lived on the margins.The mournfully beautiful film is a brilliant and timely and telling statement about the difference between the haves and the have-nots.After living off the grid in Oregon for years, traumatized military veteran Will (Ben Foster) and his teenage daughter, Tom (Thomasin Harcourt McKenzie), are picked up by social services and forced to integrate back into society. While Tom begins to connect with others and thrive, Will struggles and attempts to avoid his demons by escaping back into the wild. Directed by Debra Granik. Based on the novel MY ABANDONMENT by Peter Rock.[A] tale about how difficult it can be to live by one’s principles and about how choosing an ascetic path can blur the line between love and neglect.
