A young biologist, Tyler, is sent by the Canadian government into the Arctic wilderness to study the wolves which have been accused of killing off the caribou herds. During his studies, Tyler struggles to endure the many hardships found in the wild, but gains a respect for the wolves. Ultimately he discovers that hunters, and not the wolves, are the main enemy of the caribou.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Measures up to the promise Ballard amply provided in his first feature, The Black Stallion.
June 21, 2017
For the most part very absorbing, the film suffers from some embarrassingly obvious symbolism.

Common Sense Says
Suspenseful, poignant wilderness film; a few gross scenes.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this Oscar-nominated drama about a man in the wilderness includes some graphic animal eating scenes and some non-sexual nudity. Expect several perilous situations, pipe smoking, beer drinking, and a prolonged scene where man and wolf are juxtaposed eating mice. A few scenes show the main character naked while changing clothes, swimming, or running (brief full frontal, bare butt). Since the end isn't concrete, expect kids to ask questions about what happened after the credits roll.
