On Cinema: Idris Elba in ‘The Mountain Between Us’

Romance and disaster are the main topics of the new movie starring Idris Elba (Luther, The Wire, Guerrilla) and Kate Winslet (Titanic, Revolutionary Road, The Reader). Directed by Hany Abu-Assad (Paradise Now, Omar) and written by Chris Weitz (The Golden Compass, Rouge One: A Star Wars Story) and J. Mills Goodloe (Superman, The Omen, Scrooged), based on Charles Martin’s novel with the same name.

It might seem the beginning of a romantic love story when, after the cancellation of their flight due to stormy weather, Dr. Ben Payne (Elba) and photojournalist Alex Martin (Winslet) meet on a charter plane.

But The Mountain Between Us evolves around the disastrous journey of Elba’s and Winslet’s characters who survive a plane crash and are stranded in High Uintas Wilderness with injuries and harsh weather conditions. The two struggle for survival and find themselves lost in the wilderness, fighting for their lives.

UK Release dates Twentieth Century Fox on 6 October 2017
