'The Mountain Between Us'
He (Idris Elba) is a British doctor who needs to be in Baltimore as soon as possible to perform a procedure; she (Kate Winslet) is a journalist who's getting married the next day. The strangers charter a small plane after the airlines give them the heave-ho. It crashes into the snowy, frozen tundra. They have only each other to rely on if they want to live. The mountain is not just a metaphor, people. Palestinian director Hany Abu-Assad's English-language debut combines an old-school survivalist story and an old-fashioned romantic drama into a dual star vehicle – the kind of marquee-name Hollywood movie that studios used to make on the regular before superhero movies took over.
