Captain Fantastic

VIGGO Mortensen and Alstonville teen actor Nicholas Hamilton star in this film about alternative parenting.

When tragedy strikes, they are forced to leave this self-created paradise and begin a journey into the outside world.

Rated M for mature themes, coarse language and nudity.

At Kyogle Cinemas, Byron Bay Pighouse Flicks and Ballina Fair Cinemas from tomorrow.
