Far From the Tree
2017 ‧ Documentary (NR) ‧ 93 mins

Following families that are meeting extraordinary challenges through love, empathy, and understanding, this life-affirming documentary encourages us to cherish loved ones for all they are, not who they might have been. Based on Andrew Solomon's award-winning, critically acclaimed, New York Times bestselling non-fiction book "Far From the Tree: Parents, Children and the Search for Identity."
Fair warning: By the end of "Far From the Tree," tears will be shed, and for all the best reasons.

Leave No Trace
PG 2018  119 mins

 A father and daughter live a perfect but mysterious existence in Forest Park, a beautiful nature reserve near Portland, OR, rarely making contact with the world. But when a small mistake tips them off to authorities, they are sent on an increasingly erratic journey in search of a place to call their own.
Critics Concensus:  Leave No Trace takes an effectively low-key approach to a potentially sensationalistic story -- and further benefits from brilliant work by Ben Foster and Thomasin McKenzie.
