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.

Written (with Anne Rosellini) and directed by Debra Granik (Winter's Bone).


Heard a lot of great stuff about this one. If Rotten Tomatoes is your thing, it has 100% on there. I knew I'd like it from the trailer - which, don't let it put you off it does. The trailer paints the film as something more mainstream and conventional that it actually is. I thought the film actually had a sort of Hirokazu Kore-eda kind of quality about it. Very quiet, unrushed, nuanced, observational, but with some genuine emotional punches. This is my favorite of the year so far.
