A father raising his children off the grid begins to question his anti-establishment, utopian views when a tragic loss pulls them back into society. In the forests of the Pacific Northwest, a father devoted to raising his six kids with a rigorous physical and intellectual education is forced to leave his paradise and enter the world, challenging his idea of what it means to be a parent. Viggo Mortensen (The Lord of the Rings series) stars in The New York Times Critics’ Pick, Captain Fantastic, about an unconventional man who raises his six children in the forest of the Pacific Northwest, isolated from society. When he is forced to bring his family out of seclusion and into the world, this leads to a confrontation with his father-in-law (Frank Langella, Frost/Nixon), who wants his grandchildren to have a normal life. Now Ben must question if his methods are the best for his family. Rolling Stone raves, “Viggo Mortensen is magnificent. A career best work.”
