Captain Fantastic

Dir: Matt Ross

United States of America (USA)


119 mins


Viggo Mortensen (Eastern PromisesThe Road) stars as an idealistic father raising his children away from contemporary civilisation in the charming, eccentric Captain Fantastic from actor/director Matt Ross.

In the lush wilderness of the Pacific Northwest, Ben (Mortensen) lives with his six children in Thoreau-esque seclusion, giving them a rigorous physical and intellectual education of his own design, until a family crisis forces him to re-enter the world. Exposing his children to a new way of life presents challenges for them all, and Ben must reassess his idea of what it means to be a parent.

Reminiscent of Little Miss Sunshine in its study of a supposedly dysfunctional family finding its way, and with a typically fine performance from Mortensen (as well as turns from Frank Langella, Kathryn Hahn and British actor George MacKay), Captain Fantastic is garnering strong reviews from early festival screenings.
