This looks melodramatic, but I mean that in the good way.
Whenever anyone says “why don’t they make movies for adults anymore?” this year, here’s a good one to point them at. I wasn’t kidding when I said that this seems melodramatic, but melodrama isn’t a bad thing when you’re two award-winning actors battling the elements and learning what it means to depend on another person to survive.
I will say this though, I’m worried about that dog that only shows up in one shot.
The Mountain Between Us is out October 20th. Here’s the official synopsis:
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 hundreds of miles of wilderness, pushing one another to endure and discovering strength they never knew possible. The film is directed by Academy Award nominee Hany Abu-Assad and stars Academy Award winner Kate Winslet and Golden Globe winner Idris Elba.
