Filmmaker Debra Granik made a big splash with Winter’s Bone in 2010, but followed that film up with the low-key (but vital) documentary Stray Dog. She finally returns to mainstream theaters this week with Leave No Trace, a social-realist look at an “unhoused” father and daughter, played by Ben Foster and new sensation Thomasin Harcourt McKenzie. Philip Martin reviews the film and Dan Lybarger speaks to Granik for this week’s Friday Style section.
We’re also got an awful lot of Piers Marchant — his limited run 30x30 series is starting to wind down but he’s got a few more classic films to see before he’s done. And he tackles the Sundance favorite Sorry to Bother You and the latest from the world’s biggest movie star, Duane Johnson, Skyscraper. And there’s a double dose of Karen Martin’s Home Movies column.
So pick up Friday's Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.
