Leave No Trace

A story about a father and his child living in the forest will be screened in Portishead this week.

The pair manage to find an existence in solitude which can be rarely be achieved and all is rosy until a forestry crew, armed with chainsaws, threaten the peace.

But Will faces the tough choice of allowing his daughter, Tom, to seek independence or keep her at the centre of his life.

Leave No Trace is being screened by Portishead Film on Friday night.

A spokesman for the group says: “Thomasin Harcourt McKenzie delivers a startlingly confident performance as Tom, that is, by every measure, the equal of Ben Foster’s, who plays her father.

“Where Will is tormented, Tom is strong and brave — a wild child tempered by a discipline that, however misguided, is based on the spirit of self-reliance.

“Neither actor begs for your heart, but each — like this movie — takes it.”

The film starts at 80m at Jubilee Hall, in Slade Road.

Tickets, priced £5, will be available on the door.
