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. From the director of Academy Award- nominated Winter's Bone, critics are hailing this film as "powerful from start to finish" (Los Angeles Times).
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Leave No Trace takes an effectively low-key approach to a potentially sensationalistic story -- and further benefits from brilliant work by Ben Foster and Thomasin McKenzie.

Tension, some peril in intense father-daughter drama.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Leave No Trace is an intense, moving drama from the director of Winter's Bone about a loving father and daughter who are shaken out of their comfortable (if alternative) existence and must struggle to cope with society's demands. It deals with complex, realistic topics including homelessness, alternative living, and occasional exposure-related peril, all involving a 13-year-old girl (Thomasin McKenzie). Her father (Ben Foster) is a veteran who's suffering from PTSD; he makes choices that aren't meant to harm anyone but that could upset/disturb younger viewers. He also sells his prescription meds to a drug dealer. But there's no strong language or sex; the girl is intelligent, loving, and brave; and the movie ultimately has themes of understanding, love, and compassion.
