Bleecker Street just released the new poster and trailer for Captain Fantastic starring Viggo Mortensen. The film screened to mixed reviews at the Sundance Film Festival, with the New York Post calling it “an amusing and useful cautionary table” while Screen International says “a lot of the script strains credibility or doesn’t completely cohere.” Audiences will be able to judge for themselves when the R-rated drama opens in theaters on July 8, 2016. Written and directed by Matt Ross, the cast also includes Frank Langella, George MacKay, Samantha Isler, Annalise Basso, Nicholas Hamilton, Shree Crooks, Charlie Shotwell, Ann Dowd, Erin Moriarty, Missi Pyle, Kathryn Hahn and Steve Zahn.
The Plot: Deep in the forests of the Pacific Northwest, isolated from society, a devoted father (Viggo Mortensen) dedicates his life to transforming his six young children into extraordinary adults. But when a tragedy strikes the family, they are forced to leave this self-created paradise and begin a journey into the outside world that challenges his idea of what it means to be a parent and brings into question everything he’s taught them.
