CAPTAIN FANTASTIC tracks the story of a father (Viggo Mortensen) raising six children deep in the forests of the Pacific Northwest with a rigorous physical and intellectual education. When a family tragedy occurs, however, he 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 magic of CAPTAIN FANTASTIC’s extraordinary storytelling can be found in the soundtrack, which features all new compositions by American composer, musician and producer Alex Somers.
