Os­car-nom­i­nated his­tor­i­cal ad­ven­ture fol­lows Nor­we­gian ex­plorer Thor Hey­er­dahl’s epic 1947 voy­age across the Pa­cific on board his flimsy raft Kon-Tiki, a name later ap­pro­pri­ated by a travel com­pany of in­fa­mous re­pute. They say: A hand­some time cap­sule that de­serves the Os­car recog­ni­tion and casts the voy­age in a suit­ably thrilling light, ac­cord­ing to most in­ter­na­tional re­views. We­say: Rous­ing big-screen vi­sion from Scan­di­navia, with more than enough peril and heartache to keep the Arts Cen­tre’s loyal au­di­ences riv­eted. Di­rected by Espen San­berg and Joachim Ron­ning ( Ban­di­das). Run­ning time 118 min­utes. Screens at the Arts Cen­tre Gold Coast.
