"Captain Fantastic" should connect in a major way with those looking to be swept up and moved by such a fundamental human experience.

Just when you think the film is smugly poising Ben s rebel-outsider mentality against the close-mindedness of his late wife s parents, "Captain Fantastic" acknowledges that some of Ben s parenting techniques might actually be endangering his own children.

The movie s an amusing and useful cautionary table. I hope they teach it on college campuses.

Gorgeously photographed, and as loosey-goosey as its hero, "Captain Fantastic" takes some unexpected turns.

Even though its conclusion feels rushed, the movie still works as a portrait of an unorthodox family that s well adjusted in its own odd way.

Mortensen is jmagnificent. He gets under the skin of this loving father who must grapple with the possibility that his arrogant, free spirit might actually do harm to his children. The film takes a piece out of you.

Mortensen s efforts here are downright heroic. It s hard to imagine anyone better in this role, for bringing out the authenticity in a character teetering on the precipice of caricature.
