Debra Granik (LEAVE NO TRACE)

Tonight's Movie: LEAVE NO TRACE, written and directed by Debra Granik.


Debra is the Academy Award nominated director and co-writer of WINTER'S BONE, which was nominated for four Oscars, including Best Picture, and won the Grand Jury Prize at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival. Granik and co-writer Anne Rosellini were Oscar nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay. Her first feature film, DOWN TO THE BONE, won Granik the Best Director prize at the 2004 Sundance Film Festival. Most recently Debra wrote and directed LEAVE NO TRACE, a movie about a father and his thirteen year-old daughter are living an ideal existence in a vast urban park in Portland, Oregon, when a small mistake derails their lives forever. This movie is stunning and yes, this will be my 3rd time watching it. Debra is known for having an impeccable eye for young talent, launching Jennifer Lawrence's career in WINTER'S BONE and it looks like Thomasin McKenzie, the breakout star of LEAVE NO TRACE, will have a similar trajectory.
