In the forests of the Pacific Northwest, a father devoted to raising his six children with a rigorous physical and intellectual education is forced to leave his paradise and enter the modern world, challenging his idea of what it means to be a parent. The sleeper hit of the summer, it’s thought-provoking and sometimes a little maddening, with big themes and great acting that keep you glued to the screen. With 2016, USA, 118 minutes, rated R for language and brief nudity

Cannes Film Festival: Best Director

“A story of love and extremes, the pleasurably freewheeling “Captain Fantastic” centers on a family that has found its bliss in splendid, unplugged isolation.” An NYT Critics’ Pick – Manohla Dargis, The New York Times

“It’s a rare movie that asks such big questions— about parenting, about family, about modern-day America— and comes up with answers that are moving and meaningful, that make you laugh and cry.” – Steven Rea, Philadelphia Enquirer

“A movie that enthralls the senses and engages the mind” – Rex Reed, New York Observer

”Captain Fantastic” should connect in a major way with those looking to be swept up and moved by such a fundamental human experience.” – Peter Debruge, Variety
