Excerpt: Così come in Un gelido inverno, anche questo è un racconto di formazione, con una protagonista adolescente, costretta a confrontarsi con scelte radicali, che la spingeranno lontano dalla propria comfort zone
Excerpt: Leave No Trace is not just (Ben Foster’s) finest performance yet in a catalog of fine performances but a smashing debut for his young costar Thomasin Harcourt McKenzie; it is one of if not the best feature films I have seen this year.
Excerpt: Leave No Trace is permeated by the same sense of narrative detachment that was present in “Winter’s Bone.” Scenes pass by without unnecessary drama – but also lacking a noticeable emotional punch.
Excerpt: Leave No Trace therefore asks the tough questions and accepts tougher answers. These are two empathetic people reconciling the fact their boundless love is no match for the widening chasm of personal urgency between them.
Excerpt: It’s truly and stunning and emotional work of cinema. While it might move too slow for some audiences, those who don’t mind a more deliberate pace will be enthralled by the humanity of Leave No Trace.
