RV movies: Check out the schoolie in “Captain Fantastic”

"Captain Fantastic" stars Viggo Mortensen in a movie that features scenery from Washington.

If you're looking for something to watch over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, consider:"Captain Fantastic," a 2016 indie movie starring Viggo Mortensen. 

If nothing else, you'll get a nice glimpse at a very cool schoolie -- a former school bus decked out as an RV.

Mortensen plays the hippie-ish father of six children who live in an off-the-grid location of the Washington Cascades. His wife (and the mother of the six children) has just died, and some rather big events take place as the family adjusts to this new reality.

Over the course of the movie, you'll see some stunning scenery from our home state, along with that awesome schoolie. You can find it streaming on Hulu and Kanopy.
