Trivia

According to the directors Christian Bale was almost cast in the role of Cal. Ultimately Bale decided against playing the part because he didn't want to spend time away from his family in a remote location so soon after the birth of his second child. See more »

The simplicity of storytelling on screen!
7 October 2017 | by ArtAestheticsSee all my reviews

This simple yet profound movie hit me deep in the heart. This movie is the reason I love indies. No CGI, no loud jumps, or scares. I haven't seen a survival drama told with such subtlety. Yes there are some really heart-stopping moments but I immensely appreciated the director's restraint in letting the audience tune in to what the characters were truly feeling rather than manipulate us with loud music & startles. Most of the movie rests on Matt Bomer's Cal & Josh Wiggins' David with lots of close shots of their faces. Matt Bomer has proved his mettle as an actor but I think this is his most subtle performance ever. The emotions on his face are so subtle yet so profound that he invites the audience to not want to blink lest you might miss a nuance. Josh Wiggins plays David's arc from a grumpy teen to a man so beautifully. Bill Pullman is a delight in a small but powerful role.

I felt as though I just traveled to Montana & spent time with Cal & David, the mountains, the moose, the bear, the deer, the wildlife. What a ride. Don't miss it!
