“Flawless, deeply affecting. Granik… finds tenderness, generosity and hope amid crisis”

The Guardian

Reclusive veteran Will (Ben Foster) and his teenage daughter, Tom (newcomer Thomasin Harcourt McKenzie), have lived off the grid for years in the forests of Portland, Oregon. When a chance encounter with local authorities sees them placed in social services, the pair struggles to adapt to their loss of independence.

Adapted from Peter Rock’s novel My Abandonment and inspired by true accounts of post-combat trauma, Oscar-nominated director Granik and her impressive leads invest every frame with authenticity.
