Captain Fantastic (2016)

In the forests of the Pacific Northwest, a father devoted to raising his six kids with a rigorous physical and intellectual education is forced to leave his paradise and enter the world, challenging his idea of what it means to be a parent.

Entertaining as well as thoughtful confrontation of live concepts works very well thanks to good direction and a lively ensemble; however, despite Mortensen's competent performance, the father's ideological metamorphosis is not quite comprehensible.
