De­bra Granik

“Leave No Trace”

Variety - - Contenders -

In her long-awaited fol­low-up to the best pic­ture-nom­i­nated “Winter’s Bone,” Granik delved into an­other case of a tough-willed young woman liv­ing in the mar­gins of so­ci­ety in “Leave No Trace." As with Granik’s last fea­ture, both her stars have come into high praise for their per­for­mances here, but this time the direc­tor her­self ap­pears to fi­nally be re­ceiv­ing her due at­ten­tion. Granik won best direc­tor honors from both the Los An­ge­les Film Crit­ics Assn. and the San Diego Film Crit­ics Assn., and she was also nom­i­nated for best direc­tor by the Spirit Awards.
