Captain Fantastic

About the Film

Ben (a charismatic Viggo Mortensen) and his wife live off the grid in the forests of the Pacific Northwest, where they have raised their six bright kids to value critical thinking and eschew consumerist trappings: they celebrate Noam Chomsky’s birthday instead of Christmas. When tragedy strikes the close-knit clan, they pack up the family bus for a road trip to reenter society and confront Ben’s long-estranged in-laws (Frank Langella, Ann Dowd). As Ben’s kids get a taste of a more conventional way of life, he finds his concept of parenthood challenged in this heartfelt drama about an unorthodox family.
