In Cinemas Now: Idris Elba in ‘The Mountain Between Us’

Romance and disaster are the plight set out for this 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, 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.

It might seem like 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 romantic encounter turns into tragedy and struggle for surviving when the plane crashes and they find themselves lost in the wilderness, fighting for their lives.

In cinema now from 6 October 2017
