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, challenging his idea of what it means to be a parent.

"A beautiful showcase for Mortensen."
- Rafer Guzman, Newsday
"Mortensen finds a role here that capitalizes on his contradictions, on his air of resolve and his inner life of doubt, on his hardness and his reasonableness. It becomes the showcase for one of his best performances."
- Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"Captain Fantastic is an engaging character study about compromise, humility, letting go and love of family. It's one of the best films you'll see all year."
- Liz Braun, Toronto Sun
"Viggo Mortensen is truly in his element in Captain Fantastic, in every conceivable way."
- Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"Captain Fantastic leaves viewers with the cheering, deeply affecting image of a dad whose superpowers lie in simply doing the best that he can."
- Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
"Almost startling in how profoundly life-affirming and affecting it is. That's due in large part to Mortensen's wry and tender performance as a man not only committed to his ideals, but the ideals of his wife."
- Katie Walsh, Tribune News Service
"It's a tremendously accomplished and enjoyable film about a singular household."
- Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
"This is a feel-good road trip and family dramedy movie crowned by Sundance that actually makes the formula feel fresh."
- Eric Kohn, indieWIRE
"Captain Fantastic isn't only one of the year's best movies, but one of the best cast and best acted, right down to the smaller roles .."
- Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"The casting director should win an award for finding these truly excellent young performers, who shine alongside the always wonderful Mortensen."
- Lindsey Bahr, Associated Press
