A father devoted to raising his six kids with a rigorous physical and intellectual education is forced to leave his paradise.

USA | 118 min | R | DCP | Dir. Matt Ross

Deep in the forests of the Pacific Northwest, a father (Viggo Mortensen) devoted to raising his six kids with a rigorous physical and intellectual education is forced to leave his paradise and enter the world, beginning a journey that challenges his idea of what it means to be a parent.

“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 Inquirer)

*Our Sunday November 13th screening of CAPTAIN FANTASTIC will be presented with closed captioning*
