'Near perfect' film with 100% Rotten Tomatoes rating that was snubbed by the Oscars

'Near perfect' film with 100% Rotten Tomatoes rating that was snubbed by the Oscars

It didn't even get a nomination, never mind an award

Every year, the Oscars celebrates the very best of films released across the world. But it can't please everyone.

And it most definitely can't give every great film an award, with just 23 of the prestigious statues up for grabs every time the award show comes back to Hollywood in late February or early March.

This year the show will take place on Sunday, 10 March at the iconic Dolby Theatre, which has hosted the occasion every year since the venue opened back in 2001.

Oppenheimer is expected to dominate, with 13 nominations to its name. But it faces fierce competition from Poor Things and its 11 nominations alongside the 10 given to Killers of the Flower Moon.

The list of nominations didn't please everyone, with some fuming that their personal favourites didn't get recognised.

Over on Reddit, one user said it was a 'travesty' that The Iron Claw didn't get a nomination, saying they were 'genuinely appalled and kind of frustrated'.

But it's not the first time a critically-acclaimed film hasn't made the cut.

Back in 2018, one film was released that to this say still boast a 100% certified fresh rating on review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes.

The drama, directed by Debra Granik, is based on a 2009 novel by Peter Rock called My Abandonment that itself is based on a true story.

It follows an emotional journey involving a dad and his teenage daughter who have lived off of the grid for years in an American forest. But their life in the woods, which they deem to be perfect, is shattered and both are put in to social services.

They're moved in to new surroundings, but things don't work out well and they do whatever they can to get back to the place they call home.

The film is Leave No Trace and stars Ben Foster (3:10 to Yuma) and Thomasin McKenzie (The King, Last Night in Soho) as the father and daughter pair.

See the trailer for the film below:

Robert Roten, from Laramie Movie Scope, said of the film: "The writing and direction by Debra Granik is sharp and sure. This has the lean, spare look of a low-budget independent film, but it is emotionally rich and powerful."

Raquel Stecher, from Quelle Movies, wrote: "A truly superb drama that offers no answers and just takes viewers along for the ride."

One viewer wrote: "Boring? Absolutely not. This is a beautiful film. Beautifully acted, beautifully directed, near perfect.

"Some reviewers seem to think it lacking; those reviewers are lacking something. Give it a watch, you won't regret it."

A second said: "Amazing movie with an amazing message. I think everyone should at some point watch this film."

And a third posted: "The great mystery of Leave No Trace is to explain how a drama that features only two characters - a father and a daughter - turned out so well. The usual ingredients that usually make movies attractive - violence, crime, sex, heroes - are absent here for good.

"There is just two average people who lived a peaceful life away in a forest until the moment when a new, unexpected situation forced them to make a bold and drastic change. Leave No Trace is both entertaining and sober - a real rarity in the world of movies."

You can rent Leave No Trace on Amazon's Prime Video, Apple TV, and Google Play from £2.49.
