THE acclaimed American drama Leave No Trace is Ilkley Film Society’s next screening on Sunday September 15 (8pm at Ilkley Playhouse).

Will is a traumatised army veteran who can no longer cope with the modern world and is living, survivalist-style, in a national park in Oregon together with his teenage daughter, Tom (a remarkable performance from New Zealander Thomasin Harcourt Mackenzie).

Living in parks is illegal and, as he also has a child living with him, he comes into conflict with the authorities. Tom loves the life and is fiercely loyal to her father, but are her chances of a fulfilling future being sacrificed for his benefit ?

Leave No Trace is directed and co-written by Debra Granik whose earlier film Winter’s Bone made a big impact at the Film Society in 2012. Critic Mark Kermode chose it as his Best Film of 2018.

Membership for the new season is still available (details at ) and new members will be able to join on the night.

Non-members are welcome as guests (£4) but are asked to phone Dave Howell on 01943 430097 to reserve a seat
