The Lost City of Z

A “transporting, profound” work of adventure by the great James Gray (The Immigrant) —

PG-13, 140 minutes

Based on author David Grann’s nonfiction bestseller, The Lost City of Z tells the true tale 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 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, culminating in his mysterious 1925 disappearance. An epically scaled tale of courage and passion, told in writer/director James Gray’s (The Immigrant, Two Lovers) classic filmmaking style. (2017, US, James Gray, 140 min, R)

“A film as transporting, profound and staggering in its emotional power as anything I’ve seen in the cinema in years.” -The Telegraph

“James Gray proves himself here as one of our finest and most distinctive living filmmakers.” -The Wrap

“The grandeur of this movie is off the charts. For a certain kind of old-school film fan, someone who believes in shapely, classical proportions and an epic yarn told over time, it will be the revelation of the year.” -Time Out

“A rare piece of contemporary classical cinema; its virtues of methodical storytelling, traditional style and obsessive theme are ones that would have been recognized and embraced anytime from the 1930s through the 1970s.” -Hollywood Reporter

“An attempt at an entirely different kind of film for Gray, and the results are revelatory and expansive while also true to his own complicated creative character.” -The Wrap
