I quite enjoyed this slow-paced drama even though it wasn't the survival movie I was hoping for. However, I enjoyed Willem Dafoe's performance and his evolving interactions with the central family but wasn't entirely convinced by, or interested in, his hunting mission.
Larissa Jones said it all. It was a so-so film to watch, the side-history was kind of interesting although it was totally hunting unrelated, this was what was unexpected for me from this movie, very little hunting and I got myself thinking more than once whether his skills while hunting were anything close to real. Without the boy's tip he would die lost in the woods hunting one animal by putting random traps. Anyway, it was still worth a watch and I particularly enjoy movies that make me enter natural and cold environments.
Film summary: Pharmaceutical companies are evil. The end. I mean the rest of the film is kind of interesting but the overall message is entirely too heavy handed.
