Those parents, Gerard Parsons and Suzanne Crocker (also the film's director), realized time was slipping away from them in a life that never seemed to have enough of it.
So they uprooted their children, cats and Border Collie and hiked out to the Yukon bush to spend their days together. Their kids -- Tess, Kate and Sam -- range from 4 to 10 years old and look thrilled at the prospect of a seemingly never-ending camping trip. Unbothered by any other commitments, they make fresh food from scratch, learn to build encampments and survive the occasional curious bear.
But All the Time in the World doesn't go beyond great vacation pictures or "Hey, look what our family did for nine months!" The lack of outside research or perspective fails to add substantive depth to their story. While the film mostly leaves out preachy messages (at least until the end), there's no exploration into the privilege it takes to live months without a job that requires technology or to trust that everyone is healthy enough to live far, far away from the nearest hospital. For most of us, their vacation video is a fantasy world.
