THE LOST CITY OF Z

The thrilling real-life adventures of 1920s British explorer Percy Fawcett, who dedicated his life to searching for a mysterious city in the Amazon.

Based on David Grann's nonfiction bestseller, The Lost City of Z tells the incredible true story of British explorer Percy Fawcett (Charlie Hunnam), who journeys into the Amazon at the dawn of the 20th century and discovers evidence of a previously unknown, advanced civilization that may have once inhabited the region. Despite being ridiculed by the scientific establishment who regard indigenous populations as "savages," the determined Fawcett - supported by his devoted wife (Sienna Miller), son (Tom Holland) and aide-de-camp (Robert Pattinson) returns time and again to his beloved jungle in an attempt to prove his case. An epically scaled tale of courage and passion, told in writer/director James Gray's classic filmmaking style, The Lost City of Z is a stirring tribute to the exploratory spirit and a conflicted adventurer driven to the verge of obsession. (USA, 2016, 141 min., English, PG-13, DCP | Dir. James Gray)
