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. – Chris Barton, Los Angeles Times, Nov 21, 2016

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. – Leslie Felperin, Hollywood Reporter, Sep 12, 2016

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. – Danny Leigh, Financial Times, Dec 28, 2016

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. – Jake Wilson, The Age (Australia), Sep 9, 2016

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.
Yup...I'm gushing.

Make more films like this!

A must watch

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!
