    Leave No Trace is the new movie from Debra Granik, who previously directed Winter's Bone. played at Sundance and, as of this writing, has a 100% on Rotten Tomatoes from 132 reviews counted. It's expanding wider this weekend and opening here. I'm really looking forward to seeing it. Plus, Ben Foster was so great in Hell or High Water, I'm looking forward to seeing him again in what seems like a very different role.

    Has anyone already gone in its earlier limited release?

    I'm just back from seeing this. I really don't want to say too much about it since the plot is pretty basic and I don't want to spoil it, but I thought the movie was simply outstanding and would highly recommend checking it out if it's playing near you. Ben Forster is great as usual, but Thomasin Harcourt McKenzie gives one of those rare revelatory a-star-is-born performances, and the movie is really special.

    I liked it very much, a touching Father/Daughter film that could also function as a coming of age film. I plan to rewatch Winter's Bone (The director's previous film) later tonight.

    Box Office Mojo says Blecker Street added 50 more theaters for Leave No Trace this weekend, for a new total of 361. I just wanted to note the continued expansion because it's really good, and if it's now available near any of you who haven't had it before, it's very much worth seeking out.
