Viggo Mortensen (The Lord of the Ring trilogy) stars in Captain Fantastic, the funny and heartfelt journey of a father raising his six children off-the-grid. In the American wilderness, Ben (Mortensen) teaches his kids survival skills and home-schools them with a challenging curriculum and a healthy dose of anarchy. But when tragedy strikes and the family is forced to leave their self-created paradise, Ben begins to question the choices he has made for his family. Adventurous and immensely enjoyable, Captain Fantastic is a refreshing take on the challenges of parenthood.

    Quite simply, the most beautiful and heartwarming film I've ever seen. Condenses what it means to be human and part of a loving family in less than two hours.
  • Beautiful Film

    I watched this movie on a flight and spent half the time wiping away tears brought on by the whole spectrum of emotions it evoked. It's genuinely funny, sad, tense and emotive. The performances are incredible, it's shot beautifully and the story evolves perfectly. An awesome expression of film making. Spend your time on this now.
