AroView: The breakthrough role for Wellington actress Thomasin Harcourt McKenzie, who is stunning in this haunting film from the director of WINTER’S BONE. Set in the Oregon forest, where she plays a 13-year-old being raised unconventionally “off the grid” by her father, a troubled war vet with whom she has a profound bond. Based on the novel “My Abandonment” by Peter Rock.
“Director Granik films with subtlety and quiet grace, but Leave No Trace explodes in the mind. ” ~Village Voice
