Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The "Wildlike" landscapes are exhilarating, but when the film works, it's because of the interiors.
Fresh: An uncommon and deeply sensitive take on this type of story.
Fresh: Green has deeper ambitions, eschewing procedural survival-in-the-wilderness material for a strong focus on character.
Fresh: Frank Hall Green, directing his own script, maintains a poker-faced perspective, offering no hints as to where the story might lead and allowing scenes to unfold casually.
Great Filmmaking - Worth the Watch
This is a fine film and treated the topic of pedophilia in a way that few films would: morally. The backdrop of such a beautiful scenery adds an appropriate link to the theme that nature is not out of balance, only mankind is.
I think most mature teenagers should see this, but should understand that the option chosen by the protagonist (McKenzie) in this film (in real life) would NOT have been the best way to travel. A tough topic. A great film. I highly recommend it and wish more films had this level of restraint and maturity.
Saw this at a festival, a good film to watch - Get my thumbs up!
Excellent film for teens and up
I did hit FF through the Uncle Creepy minute or two in the opening act because personally it’s hard to stomach (more is implied than shown, don’t worry, the director handles the material deftly). However, those early scenes are instrumental in capturing the urgency of our protagonist’s plight, and snaring the viewer’s investment in the outcome of the story. The threads of the themes are quite lovely as they are revealed. The photography of the Alaskan wilderness is fantastic. The acting is superb. So often, in a story line when a character is in danger, we find ourselves eventually saying “why did you do that dumb thing?” but not once did I think so here. This is a tale well told. Often I wait for films to go to the subscription streaming services but this one was worth supporting with a rental. See it, it is breathtaking.
