LEAVE NO TRACE
2018, Bleecker Street Media, 109 min, USA/Canada, Dir: Debra Granik

Will (Ben Foster) and his teenage daughter, Tom (Thomasin Harcourt McKenzie), have lived off the grid for years in the forests of Portland, Oregon. When their idyllic life is shattered, both are put into social services. After clashing with their new surroundings, Will and Tom set off on a harrowing journey back to their wild homeland. “Granik lets glimmers of hope fight their way into her unflinching view of a broken America. That's what gives her hypnotic and haunting tale of letting go its quiet power and amazing grace.” - Peter Travers, Rolling Stone


HELL OR HIGH WATER
2016, CBS Films, 102 min, Dir: David Mackenzie

Desperate to keep their family farm afloat, brothers Toby (Chris Pine) and Tanner (Ben Foster) turn to bank robbery. They’re pretty good at it – but a pursuing Texas Ranger (Jeff Bridges) is pretty good at his job, too. Taylor Sheridan’s Black List-winning script features well-drawn characters and a piercing take on Western ideals in an era of reverse mortgages. “A thrillingly good movie — a crackerjack drama of crime, fear and brotherly love set in a sun-roasted, deceptively sleepy West Texas that feels completely exotic for being so authentic.” - Owen Gleiberman, Variety.


3:10 TO YUMA
2007, Lionsgate, 117 min, USA, Dir: James Mangold

Christian Bale plays a wounded Civil War vet who sees a chance at prosperity in thief Russell Crowe, for whom Bale hopes to collect a reward when he delivers him to the prison train of the film’s title. In director James Mangold’s riveting remake of the 1957 classic, Bale and Crowe engage in a compelling battle of wits and guns that is both thoughtful character study and kinetic action film.
