The Lost City of Z (2016)

Director: James Gray. Cast: Charlie Hunnam, Robert Pattinson, Sienna Miller, Tom Holland, Angus Macfadyen, Ian McDiarmid, Franco Nero. 141 min. Rated PG-13. Biography/Adventure.

It's been awhile since we saw stories like this on the screen: crazed Lawrence of Arabia-type explorers, prepared to sacrifice their wealth, their family, and themselves, to reach dreamy destinations that might not even exist. But this too is based on a true story, and an account of the multiple early 20th century voyages that British explorer Colonel Percy Fawcett (with a small event in between called World War I) embarked upon to reach that mythical Lost City, achieves epic proportions. I guarantee: you will not be bored watching this long movie. Expecting Oscar nominations for Hunnam and Miller.
