The reason I picked this movie - the memorable 'Winters Bone' by Debra Granik.
'Leave No Trace' continues Graniks theme of disconnected, broken people and communities worn down by war, drugs, poverty, poor health, failing services, disempowerment etc
A strange, intimate world brings together mental health, the beauty of nature, youth, struggles to present normality in abnormal circumstances, strange religion, engaging animals, concrete, christmas trees & doomed .love
Juxtaposition of nature & urban blight is too simplistic. Dig a bit deeper.
Not an easy movie but highly recommended.
