Ben and Leslie Cash live largely off the grid with their offspring -- Bodevan, Kielyr, Vespyr, Rellian, Zaja and Nai -- in a cabin in the mountains of Washington state. The parents have passed their socialist and survivalist ideals to their children. Ben considers most of Western society to be fascist, especially corporate America. He also believes that no one will or should be there for you, so you'd better learn how to take care of yourself. As such, the children have been subject to vigorous physical training; know how to deal with minor bumps, bruises, cuts, sprains, and even fractures; and know how to hunt, forage, and grow their own food. The children are also non-registered home schooled, meaning that they have no official academic records. Ben and Leslie have tried to make the children critical thinkers, however, within the context of their ideals. Beyond these issues, Ben and Leslie made the decision to live this lifestyle for Leslie's health. Formerly an attorney, Leslie was diagnosed as bipolar. Ben believes that this disorder started with her postpartum depression with Bo. Yet Leslie's condition has worsened. Despite not believing in Western medicine, Ben sends Leslie to a hospital close to Ben's sister, Harper, so that there can be family close by. While hospitalized, Leslie commits suicide. Beyond the collective grief, Leslie's act brings out a battle between Ben and Leslie's father, Jack Bertrang, a Christian who not only blames Ben for Leslie's death, but believes that what he is doing "to" the children can legally be considered abuse. Jack takes over the funeral arrangements as per his and his complacent wife Abby's Christian morals, against what Ben knows was Leslie's wishes, as she believed in Buddhist philosophies. Although Jack threatens to call the police if Ben shows up to the funeral, Ben and the children believe it is their mission to honor Leslie's last wishes to be cremated as per Buddhist philosophy. This mission not only may bring the divide between Jack and Ben to a head, but may also bring out some long dormant issues between the Cash children as they are exposed to commercial America in all its good and bad, and as Bo grows into manhood, he may have his own ideas of what he should do with the next phase of his life.

I'm glad I watched this movie. I have the feeling that the film will be a cult classic, and it certainly has a nice message. It is a rare movie that you can watch and still find something new in it. The acting is great, the directing is great, and the story is great. This movie is worth watching and I definitely recommend it to everyone. I would also recommend watching it on DVD, because there are some great extras and bonus features. I will definitely watch this movie again, and I'm looking forward to the next one. It is definitely a movie that is worth watching. I give it an 8 out of 10.

This is a film I've seen a lot of times in the past and I still enjoy watching it. I guess I didn't really need to see it for a lot of the things I was going to say because I was thinking about them all the time. I like the way this film is different and funny. There are some things that I would like to see happen in the future but it is a movie and I like a lot of different things in movies. I think it's a great way to spend two hours.

Liev Schreiber is absolutely fantastic in this movie. It's a great movie. I mean it's the best thing I've seen in a while. I've seen most of his other movies but this one was the best. I don't know what to say. The performances are great, the script is good, the whole thing is good. I didn't get bored. It was so good. I liked it so much, that I bought it on Blu-Ray. It was awesome. It was a great movie. It was one of the best movies I've seen in a while. I give it an A+. 8/10

This is a nice little story, with an interesting twist on a major plot point, but otherwise, not a great movie. It is mostly about Tom Hanks as he is forced to make a life and death decision for his family in an unending struggle for survival, and at the same time, try to save his family from the consequences of the situation. The family dynamics are really well done, and the ending is pretty good. The script is actually pretty good, though the characters are not the most developed. Hanks does a great job as the main character, with his misanthropic nature and the way he manipulates his surroundings. He makes you feel for him, and you really feel sorry for him. The rest of the cast does a good job with their roles, though the supporting characters are not as developed as the main characters. This is a nice little story, with an interesting twist on a major plot point, but otherwise, not a great movie.

This film is a fantasy tale about a family of four. The story starts with the daughter leaving home to be with her boyfriend. Her mother, who is married, is upset that she can't be with her husband. So she goes back to her sister and sister-in-law, hoping that they can help her. In this family, there is a boy and a girl, the son is gay and the daughter has a lesbian relationship with a woman. This is a typical family situation. The film's main theme is the struggle between one's sexual orientation and family values. Although the film is a comedy, it has a real dramatic quality. It shows the family and the struggles they face. The scene in the bus with the policeman was excellent. I recommend this film.

I have seen this film many times and every time I watch it I get more and more drawn to it. The film is one of the best I have ever seen. It is full of humor and in a sense the movie is very real and does not have the unrealistic plots of some of the other superhero films. The acting is great and it is very believable. The writing is great and the dialogue is very funny. I really liked the way the director shows the differences between people and what they do for a living. I really liked the way the director uses the dialogue and shows the way the people act. The only thing I did not like was the direction of the camera. I mean it is like a movie and they make it look like a movie. I think they should have shot it like a documentary. The only thing I did not like was that they used too much footage from other films. I mean it is almost a documentary but it is way too much and it ruins the movie for me. I would recommend this film to anyone who has not seen it yet. It is great.

I think that this is a good film. It's not perfect but it's close. If you like something different you should watch this film. This is a very good film and I recommend it.

In one of the best films I've ever seen, director Ruben Fleischer and screenwriter George P. Cosmatos are in complete control. A film as rich in character, plot and storyline as this, with a superb cast and a compelling script, is the kind of film you need to see. There are two things that make this film worth seeing. The first is the acting. With an all-star cast, you are guaranteed to have the most likable actors in your cinema. The second is the script. What we have here is a film that is so rich in its story, and so well written, that it makes you laugh, you cry, you're proud of the characters and you will find yourself looking forward to the next film in the series. I think that this is a film that will appeal to both young and old, and to anyone who loves a film that is as full of character as it is with emotion. I can't wait for the next film, but I am certainly going to have to wait a little while. This film is a classic.

As I watched the film, I felt the same emotions as the people who read the book. I was very moved by this movie. I think I cried twice during the movie, and the tears were real tears. I don't think I cried during the first 20 minutes, but I did feel the pain of all the characters in the movie. There were many times when I was frustrated and wanted to stop watching, but I couldn't. It was a powerful film. It was beautiful to see all the children's faces. I was very moved by the beauty of this film. I think this movie is a great movie for everyone to see. It will not disappoint anyone, regardless of age. I recommend this film to everyone, because it is a great movie.

I have not seen a lot of reviews for this film, but I thought it was pretty funny. I've seen the original, but not the sequel. I can't say I was expecting much. But the story was really interesting, and I enjoyed the characters. I think it was a little cliche, but I still enjoyed it. I give this film an 8/10.

I loved this movie and I thought it was great. I love the fact that the script was straight forward, simple, and easy to follow. It kept me involved and even though I was rooting for the underdog, I felt for the characters and really liked how the movie did not give you a winner or a loser. There were some really funny parts that you had to laugh at. The scene where all of the kids are in the middle of the school and they all start to cheer for the new guy and it was really funny. I loved how the whole movie was just made up of one or two scenes that you could see every day of school and they all tie together really well. The music was great and really fit the movie. The whole movie is just one great scene after another. I really liked the way the movie ended and I think that it was a great ending to a great movie. I thought it was a good ending because it made me think about what happens after the movie. It also made me think about what will happen in the future and I think it was a good ending for a movie like this. Overall, I thought the movie was great and I really liked it. I think that if you haven't seen it yet, then go out and rent it now because you will not be disappointed.

I thought this movie was hilarious. It is a comedy of the genre, that I loved. The story is about two of the most unlikely of heroes, Captain Fantastic and his cousin Ben Grimm. They are the ones who come up with the brilliant idea of a team to stop a cosmic event from destroying the earth. What they do not realize is that it will be their downfall. The movie is full of laughs and great action sequences. It is a must see for all superhero fans. I recommend this movie for fans of the genre. 8.8/10

Although the plot is a bit confusing, the plot is not what you would expect. The movie is a tribute to the old comic book hero "Iron Man", but in a very tongue-in-cheek way. For example, you never see the Avengers at the mall, instead you see the Iron Man suit and how much fun it is to use. I really enjoyed the way the movie kept to the comics, so much that I ended up not even caring about the plot at all. The story is very entertaining and a must see for all fans of the comic book. A+

I didn't want to watch this movie but I've watched it. After watching the trailer, I thought I'd watch it because it looked so funny. I was wrong. I thought it was going to be a funny movie, but I didn't expect it to be so realistic. This movie had so many plot twists, that I was just left confused. There were a lot of people laughing at the movie, and it was almost impossible to understand what the heck was going on. If you're thinking of watching this movie, don't! It's not worth it. I really think that people should have been able to understand the plot.

When I first saw the trailer for this film I didn't know what to expect, but it was funny and pretty cute. The movie was pretty good, I enjoyed it, but I don't really know what I was expecting. So I bought the DVD. The movie itself is a cute movie. It's kind of like the 90's version of "The Grinch" but I think this is more funny. The plot is pretty simple. A kid is stuck on a boat and he has to find a way to get back to the mainland. But he also has to find a way to get to the mainland. So I don't really know how it's going to turn out. But I enjoyed it, I don't really know why. I think this movie is just too cute and you just want to have a good time. The thing that makes this movie so good is that the animation is pretty good. The colors are nice, and the characters look real. So you can see the characters, but you can also see the backgrounds, and that's what makes this movie so good. So I give it an 8/10. I really enjoyed it.

Not a "chick flick" per se, but certainly a better way to spend an hour and a half. The only drawback is that it is a bit slow, but it's good for a nice laugh.

I will admit that I was a little skeptical about this movie, and when it came out I couldn't get it out of my head. I am a big fan of "Doctor Strange" and "The Avengers", and thought the trailers looked really cool. I can't say I was disappointed, but I was really surprised with the story. While it is a movie based on a Marvel comic, the acting was fantastic. It wasn't a very serious movie, and the actors were great. I think it was a great way to introduce the audience to these characters and introduce a new story. I enjoyed the actors, and I think they did a great job. The story itself was very fun, and it was also different from the comic. I really enjoyed the director's touch and the way the film was shot. It was dark, and I thought it was really well done. Overall, I thought the movie was great, and I am glad I saw it. I would definitely recommend it to people who like superhero movies and like action.

This film has great acting and an extremely well written script. I like how they took a couple of popular characters and made them relatable. The pacing is good, the characters are likable and the script is easy to follow. If you're looking for a good comedy or action flick, I recommend this.

I saw this film at a screening last night at the Reel Reality Theatre. The film is set in the year 2053, and it is about a group of people who have been trapped in a house for four years. They have no choice but to get a drink and to make a phone call to help them find a way out. After that they have a struggle to survive. The cast is very good and the film is very funny. The movie has great cast, the direction is good and the actors are very believable. It is a very well done film, I give it 8/10.

This is a very good movie. The film makers could have made the story a little more realistic. But this is a great film, very enjoyable. The characters are believable, and the story is very well done. It is a very good movie, but it would have been better if it was made more realistic. The movie is great. I don't understand why people who dislike this movie think it is unrealistic.

I will not lie, this movie is not as good as the original. The only thing that I will say is that the movie is much better than the original. It has a lot of comedy and a lot of drama. I really enjoyed this movie. I think that the story line is great. It is also very well done. The acting is great. You have got all of the cast. The movie also has a lot of good jokes. I thought that the movie was great. I think that the movie is really good. It is definitely worth seeing. I also think that it is a great movie. I think that the movie is a lot better than the original.
