Ben Cash (Viggo Mortensen), his wife Leslie and their six children live deep in the wilderness of Washington state. Isolated from society, Ben and Leslie devote their existence to raising their kids — educating them to think critically, training them to be physically fit and athletic, guiding them in the wild without technology and demonstrating the beauty of co-existing with nature. When Leslie dies suddenly, Ben must take his sheltered offspring into the outside world for the first time.
“If there weren’t already a film called “World’s Greatest Dad,” that over-commodified Father’s Day slogan would have made a fine title for Matt Ross’ “Captain Fantastic.” – Variety
“Think of the movie as Noam Chomsky’s Little Miss Sunshine. It has a wacky road trip, a gonzo public disruption, a stolen corpse, some tears, and a lot of rage against the capitalist machine.” – Vulture
“Viggo Mortensen is at the top of his game in this family dramedy, shot through with humor and heart.” – Rolling Stone
