BLEECKER STREET DATES SUNDANCE HIT, “CAPTAIN FANTASTIC” FOR JULY, 8, 2016

 

NEW YORK, NY – February 4, 2016 – Bleecker Street has announced the release date following sold out screenings at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival.  The film was written and directed by Matt Ross (28 HOTEL ROOMS), who was recently named one of Variety’s “10 Directors to Watch.”

 

Andrew Karpen, CEO of Bleecker Street stated, “Seeing the reaction to the film at Sundance, including three standing ovations at the Eccles, we knew this film had to play in the summertime when audiences are looking for this kind of crowd-pleaser.  We’re looking forward to bringing the film to theaters across the country starting in July.”

 

Deep in the forests of the Pacific Northwest, a father (Viggo Mortensen) devoted to raising his six kids with a rigorous physical and intellectual education is forced to leave his paradise and enter the world, beginning a journey that challenges his idea of what it means to be a parent.

 

The film is produced by Lynette Howell, Jamie Patricof, Shivani Rawat, and Monica Levinson. It also stars Frank Langella, George MacKay, Kathryn Hahn, Steve Zahn, Ann Dowd, Samantha Isler, Annalise Basso, Nicholas Hamilton, Charlie Shotwell, and Shree Crooks.
