Captain Fantastic
Captain Fantastic (Matt Ross, USA 2016)


When a father who’s brought up his children deep in a forest takes them back into mainstream society, they begin questioning much he has taught them. A deft critique of both capitalist & counter culture. Stick it to the man!

"There are many tonal plates being spun here; the lack of a deafening crash is impressive. It comes down, you suspect, to the film's embrace of its own contradictions."
Financial Times

"The mood shifts constantly, so that at any given moment the family's lifestyle seems either ideal or like a mild form of child abuse."
The Stranger

"It's Little Miss Sunshine for Bernie Sanders fans."
Sunday Times
