THE MOUNTAIN BETWEEN US

Janet's TAKE: #TheMountainBetweenUs is a compelling survival tale with winning performances -up until the contrived romance hits the screen. C

Great cinematography and casting cannot
overcome the trite ending. Pleeeze, you spend weeks fighting for survival in the frozen tundra and suddenly decide you have the energy for passion!

Synopsis:
Stranded after a tragic plane crash, two strangers must forge a connection to survive the extreme elements of a remote snow covered mountain. When they realize help is not coming, they embark on a perilous journey across hundreds of miles of wilderness, pushing one another to endure and discovering strength they never knew possible. The film is directed by Academy Award nominee Hany Abu-Assad and stars Academy Award winner Kate Winslet and Golden Globe winner Idris Elba. - 20th Century Fox


Rating: PG-13 for a scene of sexuality, peril, injury images, and brief strong language
Running Time: 103 minutes
