The proverbial call of the wild sounds more like a roar in this trapped-in-the-wilderness survival drama, based on Charles Martin’s 2011 novel and directed by Hany Abu-Assad.

Two strangers meet at an Idaho airport, anxious after their respective flights are canceled. A photojournalist (Kate Winslet) persuades a dashing surgeon (Idris Elba) to charter a plane to Denver, where a flight connection awaits. The bumbling pilot (Beau Bridges) has a stroke and the plane crashes on a remote snowy mountaintop. The passengers, along with the pilot’s dog, struggle to survive against incredible odds as predicable romantic sparks fly.

A scary airplane crash, moments of peril, a nongraphic sex scene, two profane oaths. The Catholic News Service classification is A-III — adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 — parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
