Captain Fantastic, starring Viggo Mortensen, Captain Fantastic tells the story of an idealistic father forced to re-examine his ideas on freedom and family when he and his six children leave their isolated home in the American wilderness to face the outside world, challenging his idea of what it means to be a parent.

Written and directed by Matt Ross, the film stars Mortensen as its lead, with support from actors Frank Langella, Kathryn Hahn and Steve Zahn.

A review published by Variety said Captain Fantastic featured Mortensen in “the role he may well have been born to play”.

Captain Fantastic easily ranks among the most polished and relatable of this year’s Sundance offerings, even if the self-sufficient lifestyle it depicts will feel totally alien to most of its mainstream audience.”
