Captain Fantastic is an emotional comedic drama about a bohemian family which has lived in the woods for a decade as a protest against mainstream society, only having to reintegrate themselves after a family tragedy. Filled with dark humor and some unexpected twists, this entertaining film also provides a commentary on the hypocrisy of Western values and taboos surrounding sex, violence and religion (Klaus Ming February 2017).
