Debra Granik, who directed Winter’s Bone in 2010, returns with this film about Will and Tom, a grizzled army veteran and his 13-year-old daughter. Periodically, they amble into the city, and then return to their jungle. They are living a kind of radical Thoreau-guerrilla existence in a huge public park in Portland, Oregon until Tom carelessly allows herself to be spotted by a hiker and things take a turn for the worse.

“A deeply intelligent, complex, finely tuned and observed movie. It’s a movie that will live with me for a long time.” – Peter Bradshaw, Observer

“… alternately gripping and melancholic, but always shot through with the unmistakable ring of truth. The result is work of overwhelming, understated power that quite simply took my breath away.”-  Mark Kermode, Guardian
