Stranded in the mountains after a tragic plane crash, Alex and Ben (Kate Winslet and Idris Elba), an unlikely and unrelated pair must forge a connection in order to stay alive in the wilderness and find their way home; but, just how deep and strong will their connection have to go? Directed by Hany Abu-Assad and based on the novel by Charles Martin the first two thirds of this film play out remarkably well as our two protagonists soldier their way through the elements; and, the chemistry between Elba and Winslet is undeniable, strong, and authentic. But, coming to terms with the blatant, derivative, and cliche conclusion of the final third is something that remains to be of great effort, an oversold sale that gets worse with age. This dramatic thriller gone romance goes sour fast in the final critical moments. Wait for its appearance on the Lifetime channel in a few months, The Mountain Between Us is rated PG-13.
