Critic’s Choice: Debra Granik’s ‘Leave No Trace,’ ‘Winter’s Bone’ to screen at Egyptian

Few American independent filmmakers use wilderness as evocatively, or with as much respect for its mysteries, as Debra Granik. She made her feature debut in 2004 with “Down to the Bone” but came to prominence with 2010’s “Winter’s Bone,” a beautifully bleak Ozarks-set mystery-thriller that won the top prize at Sundance and earned an Oscar nomination for its then-little-known star, Jennifer Lawrence.
