QUICK TAKE:
Drama: After being removed from their makeshift campsite home in the woods outside of Portland, a military veteran and his teenage daughter try to cope with the unexpected upheaval in their lives.
PLOT:
War veteran Will (BEN FOSTER) and his teenage daughter Tom (THOMASIN McKENZIE) have been living in a makeshift campsite home in the woods outside of Portland for some time. They're completely at ease with their off-the-grid lifestyle and Will, who suffers from PTSD, earns enough money selling prescription drugs -- which he gets from the local VA hospital -- to other "homeless" vets living nearby so that he and Tom are never lacking food or basic supplies. But they're always nervous about any strangers who might stumble across them.

That fear comes to light when police find and arrest them for illegally living in the woods. From that point on, as they must contend with brief confinement, relocation in a rental home, and then Will's quest to return to the woods to live, the father-daughter duo find their relationship beginning to show signs of strain as she begins to long for more contact with civilization, something he can't imagine for himself.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Some might be drawn in by the critical buzz, but unless that's the case or they're fans of someone in the cast, it doesn't seem likely.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For thematic material throughout.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
