CAPTAIN FANTASTIC: DON’T LET THE TITLE SCARE YOU OFF!

If the movie title “Captain Fantastic” repels you, you are not alone. We imagined another one of THOSE superhero movies and almost skipped seeing it. That would have been a HUGE loss. The story summation – about a father raising and teaching his six kids to live off the grid in the remote Pacific Northwest, isn’t all that inviting either, but the film is EXCEPTIONAL. It’s a well-written family drama with humor and abundant life lessons. Inevitably the family clashes with the real world and everyone comes out wiser. Fans of Viggo Mortensen are in for a real treat – he’s never been better as the self-reliant dad. This movie is hard not to like.

    Sounds like someone dusted off the screenplay to “The Mosquito Coast.”
