JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A new movie starring Kate Winslet and Idris Elba has a local connection.
"The Mountain Between Us" is adapted from a book by Charles Martin, a Jacksonville author.
A sold-out crowd got to enjoy the film Friday night at the San Marco Theatre.
Many gave it two thumbs up.
"(It was) very, very good. Just excellent. A must-see," Yolanda Wright said. "I like the author, and love his books."
The movie is showing at several theaters across Northeast Florida.
