The Mountain Between Us is a 2017 Action/Adventure/Drama film that is starring Idris Elba and Kate Winslet. It is directed by Hany Abu-Assad (known for Paradise Now and Omar). A synopsis for this film via IMDb reads: “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 the wilderness.”
I would like to start off by saying that this is an extraordinary film. It kept me on the edge of my seat, and not knowing what was going to happen next was the best thing ever. The acting of the main actors, Idris Elba and Kate Winslet, was top class and they have a remarking chemistry on screen. I think this movie is so original and I can’t wait to watch it again. In my opinion, this was one of the best movies I’ve seen this year. What makes it stand out is the fact that it’s for everybody. There’s plenty of action, drama, adventure, romance, and more. The film was emotional, and exciting to watch.
I formed a connection with its characters, I became attached to them and was rooting for them, hoping they would be rescued. Besides the main actors, I also liked the dog who brings together Ben and Alex. I didn’t know that this movie is based on the book (of the same name) by Charles Martin, so I might give it a reading to compare it to the motion picture. I loved the way the film was shot and the sights that it presented were breathtaking . What you don’t see in the trailer is that The Mountain Between Us also delivers a love story. I think this was a clever marketing idea, because it gives the viewers the chance to discover this while watching.
If I were to mark this film, it would get an 8.5 out of 10. It is really outstanding, so it’s definitely worth seeing. The Mountain Between Us is out in cinemas everywhere! Here’s a preview of what you can expect:
