After winning two of the most important Oscars awards earlier this year, Mexican-born director, Alejandro González Iñárritu, follows up his Best Picture Birdman triumph with what seems to appear as another winner – The Revenant starring Leonardo DiCaprio. This is another Oscar bait film with a Christmas date, an Oscar winning director and an A-list movie star.
Inspired by true events, THE REVENANT is an immersive and visceral cinematic experience capturing one man’s epic adventure of survival and the extraordinary power of the human spirit. In an expedition of the uncharted American wilderness, legendary explorer Hugh Glass (Leonardo DiCaprio) is brutally attacked by a bear and left for dead by members of his own hunting team. In a quest to survive, Glass endures unimaginable grief as well as the betrayal of his confidant John Fitzgerald (Tom Hardy). Guided by sheer will and the love of his family, Glass must navigate a vicious winter in a relentless pursuit to live and find redemption. THE REVENANT is directed and co-written by renowned filmmaker, Academy Award® winner Alejandro G. Iñárritu (Birdman, Babel).
