North Brisbane Greens says
Join us at a fundraising movie night for the North Brisbane Branch of the Queensland Greens, to help fund the next election.

WHAT: Captain Fantastic (with Viggo Mortensen, directed by Matt Ross - no, another one we think, not our erstwhile awesome Federal Election field campaign organiser!)
WHEN: 6.30pm Wednesday September 14th
WHERE: The Palace Barracks, 61 Petrie Terrace, Brisbane

Deep in the forests of the Pacific Northwest, isolated from society, a devoted father (Viggo Mortensen) dedicates his life to transforming his six young children into extraordinary adults. But when a tragedy strikes the family, they are forced to leave this self-created paradise and begin a journey into the outside world that challenges his idea of what it means to be a parent and brings into question everything he's taught them.

A story of love and extremes, the pleasurably freewheeling Captain Fantastic centers on a family that has found its bliss in splendid, unplugged isolation.
Manohla Dargis·The New York Times
If there weren't already a film called "World's Greatest Dad," that over-commodified Father's Day slogan would have made a fine title for Matt Ross' "Captain Fantastic".
Peter Debruge·Variety
Viggo Mortensen steals the show as a father whose idealistic way of raising his children comes under attack by the real world.
Brian Moylan·The Guardian
