The Lost City of Z
director:
James Gray
cast:
Charlie Hunnam, Robert Pattinson, Sienna Miller

The incredible true story of British explorer Percy Fawcett (Charlie Hunnam) and his loyal aide-de-camp (Robert Pattinson), who journeyed into the Amazon at the dawn of the 20th century and discovered evidence of a previously unknown, advanced civilization that may have once inhabited the region—sheer blasphemy among the scientific establishment in England. A hypnotic, painterly film, this classic adventure yarn is given over to flashes of transcendence from director James Gray. “There’s much to love in this film, but what lingers are those lapidary details that often go missing in stories about great men, as if they had built the world alone and no child had ever raced down a road waving goodbye as a father disappeared into history.” (Manohla Dargis, NY Times)
