Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Oct 16th at 4:10 for Captain Fantastic at the Landmark Bethesda Row . Look for Laine wearing a denim skirt in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
Captain Fantastic is a charmingly eccentric, sweet and funny look at an unconventional family living deep in the forests of the Pacific Northwest. Viggo Mortensen (The Lord of the Rings, The Road) stars as Ben, a father devoted to raising his six kids with a rigorous physical and intellectual education. After the death of his absent wife, he is forced to leave his paradise and enter the world, beginning a journey that challenges his idea of what it means to be a parent. Winner of the Un Certain Regard award for directing at Cannes Film Festival, this heart-wrenching drama from writer/director Matt Ross also stars Frank Langella, Kathryn Hahn, Annalise Basso, George MacKay, Ann Dowd, Samantha Isler and Nicholas Hamilton.
