Captain Fantastic is a soulful film full of wit and heart. There are moments that border on corny (i.e. a certain cover of a certain rock song at a certain point in the movie), but overall, Captain Fantastic is easily described as smart.

Though the film feels a tad long, the performances by the entire cast are fairly remarkable and the lead of the film, Vigo Mortensen, breathes new and exciting artistry both into the role and the film as a whole.

The child actors have surprising presence on screen, and help in portraying very complex ideas in a very clear and divisive manner.

The film is worth seeing, and though some may feel it drags in some places, it is all in all a great piece of cinema, and an interesting piece of commentary on parenthood and the ideals that we pass onto our children.
