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
