“Leave No Trace” premiered at Sundance and will next screen at Cannes, which means the movie gods have deemed this the perfect time for a trailer. “Winter’s Bone” director Debra Granik directed the film, starring Ben Foster and Thomasin Harcourt McKenzie as a father and daughter living in the wilds of Oregon. Avail yourself of the trailer below.
Here’s a brief synopsis: “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.” The trailer shows a glimpse of dather and daughter’s off-the-grid living, which is reminiscent of Viggo Mortensen’s journey in “Captain Fantastic.”
Jeff Kober and Dale Dickey co-star in the film, Granik’s follow-up to the documentary “Stray Dog.” Bleecker Street will release “Leave No Trace” in theaters on June 29.
