QUICK TAKE:
Drama: Two strangers end up stranded in the snowy wilderness after their small plane crashes there and try to figure out how to survive.
PLOT:
Photojournalist Alex Martin (KATE WINSLET) and neurosurgeon Ben Bass (IDRIS ELBA) are complete strangers, but when their flight from Idaho to Denver is canceled, they end up in a small plane piloted by Alex's friend, Walter (BEAU BRIDGES). Alex needs to get home in order to marry her boyfriend, Mark (DERMOT MULRONEY), while Ben needs to get back to Baltimore in order to perform surgery on a patient in need. But they don't even make it to Denver as Walter suffers a stroke during their flight and the three end up crashing high atop a snow-covered mountain with no sight of civilization in any direction.

Alex and Ben survive, as does Walter's dog, but the pilot perishes, thus leaving it up to the strangers to figure out how to survive. Despite having an injured leg, Alex wants to head out to try to find help, while Ben thinks that would be certain suicide, especially considering the waist-deep snow, bitter cold, and lack of proper winter hiking gear. He prefers that they stay in what's left of the wreckage, what with it at least providing a little bit of shelter from the elements.

Nonetheless, he reluctantly joins her after she heads off on her own. From that point on, they must contend with various perils along the way as they search for hope, all while experiencing mixed emotions toward each other.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Unless they're fans of Winslet, Elba or romance in the face of dire circumstances types of stories, it doesn't seem that likely.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For a scene of sexuality, peril, injury images, and brief strong language.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
