Synopsis

Deep in the forests of the Pacific Northwest, a devoted father raises his six kids in isolation from society. But when tragedy strikes, the family is forced to to leave this self-created paradise and begin a journey into the outside world, challenging his idea of what it means to be a parent.

Our take

Can a father alternately feel as the best and the worst one in the world? This freewheeling family drama from writer-director Matt Ross, featuring a Viggo Mortensen at the top of his game, poses exactly that question. An instant hit and crowd-pleaser as soon as it premiered at Sundance in 2016.
