Viggo Mortensen - Captain Fantastic

#Event: Viggo Mortensen to attend special Dublin preview screening of Captain Fantastic

Ahead of the release of Captain Fantastic (cert 15A) in cinemas September 9th, an exclusive paid preview screening will take place on Monday 15th August at 6.30pm in Light House Cinema, Smithfield. Not only will attendees be among the first in Ireland to see the film, but they will also be joined by star of the film Viggo Mortensen for a special Q&A after the screening.

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 the family are forced to leave this self-created paradise, they 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.

Heart-warming, funny and inspiring, Captain Fantastic is written and directed by Matt Ross and also stars George MacKay, Steve Zahn, Frank Langella and Kathryn Hahn. 

Viggo Mortensen has a catalogue of critically acclaimed performances to his name including his roles in; Hidalgo (2004), The Road (2009), A History Of Violence (2005) and A Dangerous Method (2011).  Mortensen is perhaps best known for his portrayal of Aragorn in The Lord of the Rings trilogy (2001-2003). Our Philip caught up with him for Jauja at the London Film Festival.

Captain Fantastic opens in Irish cinemas September 9th. For tickets to the preview visit the Light House website.
