Five men (and an accident-prone parrot) take to the sea on a handmade raft in this almost ridiculously gorgeous retelling of Thor Heyerdahl’s 1947 expedition, in which he attempted to prove that ancient settlers sailed between Peru and Polynesia. The most expensive film in Norway’s history, this Oscar nominee has beauty to spare, with no shortage of sights aimed at making the viewer’s jaw rebound off of the theater floor. Unfortunately, the lack of any real character development causes the narrative to sputter out quickly, leaving a repetitive cycle of shark sightings and sweet beards. Which isn’t all that bad of a thing, really.
