2017 Academy Award® Nominee
Thursday, February 23 | 8 pm
Anchored by a magnetic, multifaceted performance from 2017 Golden Globe and Academy Award®-nominated actor Viggo Mortensen in the lead role, Captain Fantastic tells the wonderfully offbeat story of Ben Cash (Mortensen) and his six children, who live off the grid in a remote Pacific Northwest cabin. A man of principle, Ben has raised a family of self-reliant free thinkers who are totally unprepared for life in the outside world. Crafted with intelligence and sensitivity by actor-director Matt Ross (Silicon Valley, Big Love)—who won the Best Director prize in the Un Certain Regard program at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival—Captain Fantastic is “heartfelt, comedic, gorgeous and just the right amount of sad” (the Guardian).
