(2018) (Ben Foster, Thomasin McKenzie) (PG-13)
- 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.
- 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.
