This trailer dropped last week but, somehow, I missed it until today.
Leave No Trace appears to be yet another film about an irresponsible and/or unconventional father raising his daughter in the woods. On the negative side, this is literally my least favorite genre of film. After sitting through both Captain Fantastic and The Glass Castle, I’ve pretty much reached my limit as far as screwed-up cinematic fathers are concerned.
On the plus side, however, is the fact that the father is played by Ben Foster and he seems like the type of actor who could actually do something interesting with the role. Also, the film is directed by Debra Granik, who did such a great job with Winter’s Bone.
So, perhaps against my better judgment, I will give this one a shot.
