Mountains are a great metaphor in movies. They symbolise a seemingly insurmountable challenge that the protagonist must slowly traverse in order to reach the peak (their ultimate goal.) When the plot of the film in question strands its two leads on an actual mountain, then you know there is going to be a lot of sequences showing the characters overcoming diversity.
This is the case of The Mountain Between Us a story of two people trying to survive after their private plane crashes and very little hope of escape.
Idris Elba and Kate Winslet show off their more action oriented sides as they brave the perils of the mountain and try to reach civilisation once again.
The Mountain Between Us is out in cinemas October 20!
