“Deep, heartfelt and utterly compelling. Reminiscent of Little Miss Sunshine.” -The Hollywood News
Viggo Mortensen stars in Captain Fantastic, the hilarious and heartfelt journey of a father raising his six children off-the-grid in the American wilderness. Far from the modern world, Ben (Mortensen) teaches his kids survival skills and home-schools them with a challenging curriculum of science, philosophy, literature and a healthy dose of anarchy. But when tragedy strikes, the family is forced to leave their self-created paradise and re-enter society. As the kids face the perils and excitement of an unfamiliar world, Ben begins to question the choices he has made for his family.
