An adrenaline seeking snowboarder gets lost in a massive winter storm in the back country of the High Sierras where he is pushed to the limits of human endurance and forced to battle his own personal demons as he fights for survival...."
Teenagers Zach and Josh have been best friends their whole lives, but when a gruesome accident leads to a cover-up, the secret drives a wedge between them and propels them down a rabbit hole of escalating paranoia and violence.
A veteran tracker with the Fish and Wildlife Service helps to investigate the murder of a young Native American woman, and uses the case as a means of seeking redemption for an earlier act of irresponsibility which ended in tragedy.
David (Josh Wiggins), an urban teenager, journeys to rural Montana to hunt big game with his estranged, "off the grid" father, Cal (Matt Bomer). As they ascend deep into the wilderness, father and son struggle to connect on any level, until a brutal encounter leaves them both with serious injuries, forcing them into a struggle to survive. Based on the American short story "Walking Out."
According to the directors Christian Bale was almost cast in the role of Cal. Ultimately Bale decided against playing the part because he didn't want to spend time away from his family in a remote location so soon after the birth of his second child. See more »
Incredible. Filled with heart and soul. About a boy and his father and their painful journey.
I'm not a big movie person. Shoot me. I went to see this movie at the Sundance film festival and I was blown away. I've never felt so connected and heartbroken by a movie. This is an incredible film with so much depth and meaning. I want to take everyone I know to this movie. I want to watch it a billion times. Again, I don't like movies. I highly recommend. (the one issue that I have found is that I can't seem to find this film anywhere online to purchase it so that is quite frustrating.)
