QUICK TAKE:
Drama: The lone survivor of a small plane crash in a remote section of the Arctic does what he can and must to survive.
PLOT:
It's been several weeks since H. Overgĺrd (MADS MIKKELSEN) was the lone survivor of a small plane crash somewhere in a remote section of the Arctic. His daily routine consists of catching fish via ice fishing, carving out and keeping clear large SOS letters in the snow and rocks, and using a crank radio beacon in hopes of contacting any craft that might be passing somewhere nearby. He seems to luck out when he gets a return signal from a small chopper that briefly hovers over him before losing control and crashing nearby.

The pilot perishes in that crash, but his unnamed wife (MARIA THELMA SMÁRADÓTTIR) survives, albeit unconscious and badly wounded. Overgĺrd manages to drag her back to the wreckage of his plane where he tends to her wound and realizes his situation has become more complicated than before. From that point on, and with a new topographic map he's found in the chopper wreckage, Overgĺrd must decide whether to stay put or set off on a long and arduous trek through hostile environs in hopes of reaching a remote base listed on that map.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Probably not.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For language and some bloody images.

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!!!
