Starring: Charlie Hunnam, Robert Pattinson, Tom Holland, Sienna Miller
Action adventure bio-drama, written and directed by James Gray, which tells the true story of British explorer Col. Percival 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, Nina (Sienna Miller), son Jack (Tom Holland), and aide de camp, Henry Costin (Robert Pattinson), returns time and again to his beloved jungle in an attempt to prove his case, culminating in his mysterious disappearance in 1925.
