Read about this movie while reading another board.

Based on the true story of a father and daughter who were discovered to be living in a large park around the Portland in 2004 for four years.

Thought provoking and isn't trying for entertainment.

Great movie.

Hope Frank and Ruth are well wherever they are.

+1.

Beautifully-made film but it definitely isn't for everyone.

Agree it is not for everyone.

Figured that for the members of this forum the film has plenty of points of interests. It also doesn't try to present any guilt trip or victim hood status. It is also a rorschach test since much of the film allows the viewer to fill in the blanks.

SPOILER ALERT...........highlight to see.

Just as the real father and daughter walked off, the dad does so as well and you are left wondering what happened to them. Nice touch by the film to honor that story and not placate to the standard hollywood ending.

The part where the daughter asks "Are we going to freeze?" was powerful if you are a parent or have ever done hard things.
