‘Unexpectedly rich and humane … one of the best movies ever made about a man stranded in the wilderness.’
A nail-biting tale of heroism set against a stunning glacial backdrop.
Except for a polar bear or two, Overgård is alone on the icy Arctic tundra, living hand to mouth following the crashing of his small plane. He’s been surviving for some weeks with a basic routine that is just enough to keep one person alive, until one day everything changes – and soon our hero has a far greater load to bear. Mads Mikkelsen (Rogue One, Casino Royale, The Hunt) gives a physical, career-best performance in this gripping survival thriller.
