Matt Ross has created something quite special in what is just his fourth film in the directors chair. The film follows the eccentric Ben Cash (Viggo Mortensen) and his young children as they live their uniquely regimented, back to basics, life of solitude in the woods of the Pacific Northwest. Ben is soon forced to re-enter the wider world with his group of ragtag, commando rug-rats when a personal tragedy befalls them.
