Leave No Trace also received two Gotham Award nominations for Harcourt McKenzie (Best Supporting Actress) and Ben Foster (Best Actor), which will be announced Monday, November 26, in a ceremony in New York.

Adapted from Peter Rock’s 2009 novel, My Abandonment, Leave No Trace follows a father and daughter living off the radar in a Portland, Oregon, nature preserve, whose lives are uprooted when the authorities find them.

The film, which premiered last January at Sundance and was released in theaters in June 2018, was called an “essential, shattering drama” by The Atlantic.
