Alyssa McKay plays the daughter Dad (Ben Foster) leaves behind when he’s nabbed in the public forests of Oregon in this story of living off the grid and on the edge of existence.
It has “Winter’s Bone” bones. Same director. Yup. There’s Dale Dickey from “Winter’s Bone” in the cast as proof.
It’s based on Peter Rock’s novel “My Abandonment.” Looks promising. I find stories of living out of society’s reach — offline, off the grid — fascinating. “Leave No Trace” will be on a few theater screens and VOD in June.
