Matthew_Lucas's rating of the film Kon-Tiki

Based on a remarkable true story, KON-TIKI is a real life adventure tale about Thor Heyerdahl, a scientist who sets out to prove that South Americans were the first to settle Polynesia by sailing a wooden raft across the Pacific Ocean from Peru. An epic in every sense of the word, this Best Foreign Language Film nominee from Norway is a gripping tale of survival and perseverance.
