Captain Fantastic is one of the September movies that I am looking forward to and it is a film that has already been playing well on the festival circuit.
Captain Fantastic marks the return of Viggo Mortensen to the big screen as he teams up with filmmaker Matt Ross for the first time.
Ross is on directing and writing duties in what is his first feature film since he made his debut with 28 Hotel Rooms back in 2012.
Mortensen is set to take on the central role of Ben, a devoted father of six children, in the film and you can see him in action in this terrific new clip. Check it out:
A great cast has been assembled for Captain Fantastic as Mortensen is joined by Frank Langella, George MacKay, Samantha Isler, Annalise Basso, Missi Pyle, Steve Zahn, and Kathryn Hahn.
Deep in the forests of the Pacific Northwest, isolated from society, a devoted father (Mortensen) dedicates his life to transforming his six young children into extraordinary adults.
But when a tragedy strikes the family, they are forced to leave this self¬created paradise and begin a journey into the outside world that challenges his idea of what it means to be a parent and brings into question everything he's taught them.
Captain Fantastic premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year before going on to screen in the Un Certain Regard section at Cannes earlier this summer.
Mortensen is one of the most exciting actors around and I cannot wait to see him take on another central role.
Captain Fantastic is released 9th September.
