Last sunday night, I went to the cinema with my best friend. We decided to watch the movie Captain Fantastic, a dramatic comedy by Matt Ross.
This movie is at a time funny and sorrowful. It’s the story of a family composed of a father with his six childs. They decided to live out of the society, in the forest at the North-West of the USA, because they are anarchists. The father wants to make his childs perfect adults. They don’t go to school but their father gives them a lot of books to read, they make sport, they run into the forest, they rock climbing, and they do some exercises to channel their energy like a kind of yoga. They also know how to gun a deer.
One day, their mother who was sick: she had psychological disorders, suicide her. Ubset, the family decide to continue to live as they already done, but they decided to go to the burial of the mother with Steve, their own bus to be the most discreet possible. It’s complicated because the mother’s family doesn’t like the life she decided to lead. The movie is so based on the adventures of this family to travel the country to finally go to the funeral who are not as they had to do because the mother is buddhist and her funerals are christians. The little family finally decide to make the perfect burial to her, with songs, dance, colors, and fire.
I loved the universe of this movie: it was so colorful by the outfits, but also magestic with the big forests, the waterfalls, and the animals. The characters are all endearing: the childs had all a peculiarity : Bo, the older wants to go to the university, Zaja, the younger knows a lot of thing for her young age, Rellian doesn’t like to don’t live like the others, Vespir and Kielyr are always together and they are really good at archary and climbing, Nei likes to celebrate Noam Chomsky Day, their own Christmas. I wanted to share my reviews about this movie for maybe make you watch it.
