Fresh Face: Thomasin McKenzie Blazes A Trail With ‘Leave No Trace’

  • Deadline
Fresh Face: Thomasin McKenzie Blazes A Trail With ‘Leave No Trace’
Who

Thomasin McKenzie

Age: 18

Hometown: Wellington, New Zealand

What

In Debra Granik’s Leave No Trace, McKenzie is Tom, daughter to Ben Foster’s Ptsd-affected Will. Unable to cope with society, Will has carved out a subsistence off-grid life with Tom in wooded parkland outside of Portland, Oregon, until authorities intervene and threaten their isolated idyll. Those survival skills are also the real deal. “We learned about what things you can find in the forest to eat,” McKenzie says. “How to camouflage yourself, how to listen to birds’ language, how to build shelters, and how to make fires.”

Why

Comparisons to Granik’s other wilderness drama breakout star, Jennifer Lawrence in Winter’s Bone, may be ham-fisted since McKenzie’s style is all her own, but based simply on talent level, they’re much deserved. McKenzie goes toe-to-toe with the accomplished Foster and more than holds her own. Bringing her

Thirty years ago Heathers arrived into theatres across the world. A teen comedy unlike the ones John Hughes was churning out, Heathers had a dark heart, and with that it, in many ways, truly encapsulated the turmoil of high school. The story tells of Veronica Sawyer (Winona Ryder), a high school girl and member of the most powerful clique on campus – the Heathers. Her dream of becoming popular has been tainted by the Heathers’ cruelty, and when the new boy Jason Dean (Christian Slater) arrives, she sees a way out. Jd is not a fan of the high school class system and recruits Veronica into his mission, one which involves a string of murders dressed-up as suicides.

Earlier this year we sat down with director Michael Lehman, and one third of the Heathers, Lisanne Talk, to celebrate the grand occasion. However, given how great a film Heathers is,

Winona Ryder movies: 15 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘Heathers,’ ‘Little Women,’ ‘Beetlejuice’
Winona Ryder has had her career ups and downs since she made her film debut at age 15 as a high-schooler who befriends Corey Haim, her bully-targeted classmate, in 1986’s “Lucas.” She reigned as one of the most in-demand film actresses in the ‘90s as she transitioned into more adult roles.

She ended up sentenced to three years of probation, 480 hours of community service and various fines while receiving both psychological and drug counseling.

Ryder took time off from acting between the time of her arrest until 2005, when she appeared in a string of indie films. But her true comeback arrived in J.J. Abrams‘ 2009 “Star Trek” reboot as Spock’s human mother Amanda Grayson. These days, she is best known as single mother Joyce Byers, whose 12-year-old

Paramount Network’s Shelved ‘Heathers’ Adaptation Gets International Distribution
Paramount Network’s shelved “Heathers” adaptation has secured international distribution for the show in several European and African markets.

Jason Micallef’s series adaptation of the ’80s cult classic was delayed and eventually scrapped by the fledgling Viacom network last month.
