Captain Fantastic - Movie Review 8/10

COW Blogs : The HMC : Captain Fantastic - Movie Review 8/10
In this week's Now Playing review, CAPTAIN FANTASTIC. Living off the land in the deep wilderness of Washington state, Ben (Viggo Mortensen) and his wife Leslie are raising their six kids without technology and pop culture but rather rigorous physical and intellectual education. When Leslie dies, Ben must introduce his sheltered brood to the world he's tried to save them from challenging his beliefs of parenthood.

Matt Ross, who you'll know as Gavin from Silicon Valley, wrote and directed the film. Think LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE meets Swiss Family Robinson. It's not quiet gem status due to some story cliches and a confused if not slightly sell out ending. That said, it's got charms. Particularly by way of its cast who include Steve Zahn, Kathryn Hahn, a bunch of phenomenal kids and Viggo. If he hadn't proven it already (EASTERN PROMISES, HISTORY OF VIOLENCE) Viggo Mortensen cements his legacy as one of the most brilliant actors of his generation. It's worth seeing this film for his performance alone. Regardless, you'll leave with a smile on your face.
