Leave no Trace (USA 2018 Cert 12 1hr 44mins)
Debra Granik’s powerful and poignant film Leave No Trace is Corrie Film Club’s offering for January
This award winning film, based on Peter Rock’s novel My Abandonment, revolves around a teenage girl and her father who have lived undetected for years in Forest Park, a vast wood on the edge of Portland, Oregon. A chance encounter leads to their discovery and removal from the park and into the charge of a social service agency.
Attempts are made to re-introduce them to society but there follow a series of adoptions by and escapes from well-meaning people unable to accept the free way of life that they have been living. After trying to adapt, they decide to embark on a perilous journey into the wilderness.
Subtle, tender and thought provoking, this is a film with a lot to say about the way we live. Leave No Trace is at once unique and universal, tragic and hopeful and very much worth seeing which you can do in Corrie and Sannox village hall tomorrow (Sunday) at 8.00pm. All welcome.
