** Edit 3:45 E ** I'm out. Thanks for the excellent questions! Please see CAPTAIN FANTASTIC. I'm enormously proud of the film, think it's really worth trekkin' to the theatre to see. You'll laugh, you'll cry, it will make you reflect, hopefully on a deep level, and it's a fun adventure to boot. All that, plus Viggo Mortensen. One of our greats. What more can you hope for? Be kind, tolerant, and compassionate. We're all in this together. Thanks again and PEACE. MR
