Leave No Trace ★★★★

I really loved the fimmaking and storytelling but I found myself with reservations about a father who wasn’t willing to sacrifice everything to support his daughter. I thought his actions were really selfish and self serving but after some discussion and overnight though, I was really taken by Granik’s approach to mental health and how she juxtaposes an obviously loving and caring relationship between a father and a daughter and how that relationship is torn apart by mental health.

Also, Granik`s ability to find and elicit performances from young actresses is downright stunning.
