MOVIE: LEAVE NO TRACE
Following her breakout hit Winter’s Bone, Debra Granik’s Leave No Trace is an intimate and complex coming-of-age story following a father and daughter struggling to maintain their unconventional lifestyle, set against the rugged terrain of the Pacific Northwest.
Will is a PTSD-inflicted veteran and widower living off the grid with his daughter, Tom, in a public park near Portland. When Tom makes a mistake that alerts the authorities to their existence, the family is removed from the park and placed in a home by state officials. Immersed in a world she has never experienced, Tom is drawn to the friendships, community, and comforts of her new surroundings. Meanwhile, Will is confronted with the triggers of the modern world.
Leave No Trace is a surprisingly endearing portrait of a father and daughter forced to contemplate whether family survival means sticking together or letting go. The lush Oregon landscape expertly contrasts the tension-filled narrative, with Foster delivering one of his most memorable performances to date — though it’s McKenzie who truly makes her mark..
“Once again, Granik introduces us to a kind of family that cinema rarely captures believably, and she does so with a style that’s both lyrical and realistic at the same time, anchored by a pair of unforgettable performances.” – Brian Tallerico, RogerEbert.com

Parkland Fredericton is inviting everyone to a book launch for the latest work by local author Wayne Curtis. The title of the book is Fishing The High Country (meaning places in the mind), A Memoir of The River. The book is about growing up on the Miramichi River where the author fished for the winter’s food supply and measured the season’s catches in barrels, not pounds or inches. It is also a look at the head waters, literally the “high country”, and also the occupation of river guiding as a means of employment for people who are knowledgeable about the river and the habits of the Atlantic Salmon.
Wayne grew up in Keenan NB, a farm community on the banks of the Miramichi River. He has been writing for fifty-odd years and has written nineteen books, a screen play for the CBC, a stage play and his works have been dramatized on CBC Radio. He has won several awards, including The Richards Award, The CBC Drama Award, two conservation awards, an Honorary Doctrine (letters, STU), The Order of New Brunswick and the Canadian Senate Sesquicentennial Medal.
