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, it 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."
Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Original, moving drama has some disturbing moments.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Captain Fantastic is an original, moving drama that will leave mature audiences emotional and contemplative. Expect some disturbing moments, as when a teenager is shown slaying a deer with a knife (very gory) and eating its heart raw, as well as children and teens handling weapons (mostly knives) with glee. A mother commits suicide (not shown), a dead body is shown burning, and a child suffers a dangerous fall. There's also some swearing (mostly "s--t" and the occasional "f--k"), nudity (including full-frontal male, though it's not sexual in nature), kissing/making out, and drinking (both by adults and children, though not to excess). Underlying everything are messages about forgiveness, family, and respect.
