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 »

Goofs

Cal (Matt Bomer) tells David (Josh Wiggins) not to eat snow, as it takes more water to process snow into water, than the snow gives you, calling it a sure way to dehydration. This is incorrect. All one needs to process snow into virtually pure water, is heat, and very little of that, which the body readily provides. Eating frozen snow could, however, contribute to, or hasten hypothermia, especially in a state of compromised health, extreme cold, and diminished caloric intake.

Cal (or the screenwriter) may have confused eating snow with drinking seawater, which does take more water to process than it provides, to remove the salts, and will dehydrate a human body. See more »

Terrific journey of bravery and perseverance
6 October 2017 | by stephenw-30180See all my reviews

I was not sure what to expect when I first saw the trailer for this film. I will say I am very glad I watched it.

Avoiding spoilers, I will say right off....the the story was original in a theme and setting often used. Cinematography and score were beautiful. Acting was terrific and narrative told with heart and realism.

This is the story of a boy and his father who go hunting for "Big Game" together for the first time. During their search for game a terrible accident occurs. From this point on, the film is a study in human endurance and love. Also a strong element of a boy becoming a man.

I felt the story was told perfectly without overdoing it and keeping it as real as possible. You actually feel like you Are there with them and feel their pain. This pain, however, it suppressed by the human spirit. It's a simple story, yet, original and wonderfully shot IMO.

There are parallels between Father and son and the Sons Grandfather. The flashbacks are relevant and illustrate the dynamic between the three generations.

A very well done and aesthetically beautiful film.
