Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: [It] shines as a sort of wish-fulfillment fantasy for a certain outdoors-oriented mind set, which almost makes up for its over-the-top moments and underwritten characters.
Fresh: This is really a movie for upper-middle class hipsters who once fancied themselves firebrands and status quo-challengers in college, but now consider only buying organic food at Whole Foods and not vaccinating their kids to be radical acts.
Fresh: 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.
Rotten: A more interesting version of the film would allow us to see him as either a flawed but noble hero or a deluded bully on an ego trip. But Ross is too in love with the character not to stack the deck in his favour.
so @#$>?*&%!-ing good...
As perhaps you can see by my eloquent title, I love this movie. The story, the filming/directing, the music, and the acting - all the actors were amazing, and fit their roles beautifully...this is one of my favourite films of all time.

Amazing movie, cast and subject... You've got to see this, afterwards you are in for a really interesting conversation with your family or friends about society, grief, family, education!
