POTSDAM – The Cinema 10 film series continues Monday, Oct. 15, with “Leave No Trace” at 7:15 p.m. at the Roxy Theater, 20 Main St.

“Leave No Trace” is a 2018 U.S. film directed by Debra Granick.

The director of Winter’s Bone brings to this film her characteristic compassion and understanding of complicated relationships in this story of a troubled war veteran and his daughter who live off the grid in a wooded park near Portland, Oregon.

After an encounter with Social Services, the pair set out to get back to their home in the wild.

Peter Bradshaw of The Guardian, says the film is “careful, realistic, with a sense of what is possible and what is at stake for those people who really do attempt to turn their backs on conventional living and also reject the stigma of homelessness, but also what is at stake for children who have no choice in the matter.

The movie is 109 minutes long and rated PG with mature themes.
