By Suzanne A. Marshall from the December 2017 Edition
Starring: Idris Elba, Kate Winslet, Beau Bridges
Director: Hany Abu-Assad
“Stranded after a tragic plane crash, two strangers must forge a connection to survive the extreme elements of a remote snow-covered mountain. When they realize help is not coming, they embark on a perilous journey across the wilderness.”
The movie was shot near beautiful Vancouver British Columbia, Canada in the glorious Rocky Mountains. To say the scenery is spectacular is an understatement. Though, in the dead of winter with lots of snow, there are vistas that are simply breathtaking. That being said, it’s a good movie with a somewhat predictable plot line and even a decent ending. So I really enjoyed the change from the currently, ever-present, scifi productions that are in vogue these times.
You can look forward to engaging performances by Idris Elba and Kate Winslet and a story that is truly believable and realistic. If you’re looking for something heartwarming and satisfying, I think you’ll like this one.
The IMDB rating is 6.3/10 based on about 5,076 viewers.
