If survival movies are your thing then Arctic will be right up your street. Starring Mads Mikkelsen and directed by Joe Penna, Arctic has already been critically acclaimed ahead of its release in February 2019.
A Pilot named Overgård finds himself stranded in the Arctic after an airplane crash. He must decide whether to remain in the relative safety of his makeshift camp or to embark on a deadly trek through the unknown in hopes of making it out alive. His attempts to get rescued only make things worse and he soon finds himself trying to help another survivor stay alive.
IndieWire’s David Ehrlich praised ‘Arctic' at the Cannes Film Festival as “one of the best movies ever made about a man stranded in the wilderness.”
In his review, Ehrlich writes Mikkelsen gives a “career-best performance” and calls the film “more lucid than ‘127 Hours’ and more dynamic than ‘All Is Lost.'”
The film premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in 2018 and was mostly filmed in Iceland. This is a truly engaging and compelling movie that will have you on the edge of your seat. Definitely not to be missed.
