The Mountain Between Us is a 2017 survival drama film directed by Hany Abu-Assad and based on the novel of the same name by Charles Martin. The movie stars A-list actors Kate Winslet, Idris Elba, and Beau Bridges. The story follows two strangers, Alex Martin (Kate Winslet) and Ben Bass (Idris Elba), who are stranded at an airport due to a storm. Alex is a photojournalist who is in a rush to get to her wedding, while Ben is a surgeon who urgently needs to perform a life-saving operation. With no flights available, the two decide to charter a private plane together in order to reach their destinations.

Mid-flight, the plane crashes into a remote, snow-covered mountain range, leaving Alex, Ben, and the pilot (Beau Bridges) stranded and injured. With no communication, limited supplies, and no hope of rescue, the three must find a way to survive the treacherous and unforgiving wilderness.

What follows is a harrowing tale of survival as the two strangers must rely on each other to stay alive. Alex, with her determined spirit and quick thinking, takes charge of the situation while Ben, with his medical expertise, tends to her injuries as well as his own. The two clash in the beginning due to their differing personalities, but soon they realize that they have to work together to make it out of this alive.

As the days pass, the two begin to open up to each other and share details of their lives. They learn to trust each other and form a strong bond as they face incredible challenges in their fight for survival. They encounter steep cliffs, dangerous wildlife, and plummeting temperatures, making every step of their journey even more treacherous.

As they struggle to stay alive, they are also faced with their own mortality and what truly matters most in life. Through their journey, they learn about love, loss, and the power of the human spirit.

The cinematography of the movie is breathtaking, with stunning views of the snow-covered mountains and landscapes. The acting by both Kate Winslet and Idris Elba is top-notch as they deliver powerful performances and make you invested in their characters.
