Bleecker Street has just released the official trailer for “Leave No Trace.”
The film stars Ben Foster and Thomasin Harcourt McKenzie as a father and teenage daughter who live off the grid in Portland, Oregon. From the studio:
When their idyllic life is shattered, both are put into social services. After clashing with their new surroundings, Will (Foster) and Tom (McKenzie) set off on a harrowing journey back to their wild homeland.
“Leave No Trace” was directed by Debra Granik. Granik was nomimated for Best Adapted Screenplay for her film “Winter’s Bone” in 2010. That film was also nominated for Best Picture, and launched the career of Jennifer Lawrence, who scored her first Oscar nomination. Granik followed that film with the documentary, “Stray Dog.” This is her first narrative feature since “Winter’s Bone.”
Ben Foster got his start on the short lived series “Flash Forward.” He transitioned into films and has starred in quite a few high profile projects. Some of his credits include “3:10 to Yuma,” “X-Men: The Last Stand,” “Hell or High Water,” and last year’s “Hostiles.”
Thomasin McKenzie has done quite a bit of work in her few years in the business. She appeared in “The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies,” as well as a few TV pilots and miniseries.
“Leave No Trace” also stars Jeff Kober (“Sully”), Dale Dickey (“Hell or High Water”), and Isaiah Stone (“American Honey”).
In addition to directing, Debra Granik co-wrote the screenplay with “Winter’s Bone” collaborator Anne Rosellini. They adapted the script from the novel, “My Abandonment,” by Peter Rock.
The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January, and went on to additional festivals, including Cleveland, and Palm Springs. It will also screen as part of Directors’ Fortnight at Cannes.
Bleecker Street will release the film in select theaters on June 29.
