Leave No Trace

Debra Granik’s stunning film Leave No Trace is a site to behold. The story of a father with PTSD and his daughter trying to find a home is both beautiful and painful in the best way. The bond between a father and a daughter feels so palpably real you will have to remind yourself that you are not watching a documentary.

Where most directors opt for dialogue to move the film, Granik uses scene setting and pure emotion from her co-stars to make her film come alive. Ben Foster and Thomsin McKenzie both turn in incredible performances, treating each scene with patience and purpose. It is a must-see, one that will stay with you after the credits roll. 9.5/10

A great review from RogerEbert.com
