The Arran Banner - - News -

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 em­bark on a per­ilous jour­ney into the wilder­ness.

Sub­tle and thought pro­vok­ing, the film has a lot to say about the way we live. Leave No Trace is def­i­nitely worth see­ing.

It will be shown in Cor­rie and San­nox vil­lage hall to­mor­row (Sun­day) at 8pm. Ev­ery­one wel­come.
