The true test of a couple comes when they're far from home. Living together is one thing, but backpacking in Georgia (the country, not the state) is a far more difficult undertaking, as the couple in The Loneliest Planet soon discover.
The pair hires a guide to take them through the stunning Caucasus Mountains, but a bizarre encounter with an irate stranger creates a fissure in their relationship that they might not come back from. Sumptuous scenery, meaty performances, and more subtext than a Hemingway short.
