Dir. Alejandro González Iñárritu
González Iñárritu will undoubtedly return to awards contention for his newest film, The Revenant. Like In the Heart of the Sea, The Revenant tells a true story in the 1820s. 5-time Oscar-nominee Leonardo DiCaprio (The Wolf of Wall Street, Gangs of New York) stars as frontiersman Hugh Glass, survivor of a vicious bear attack on a quest for revenge against those who left him at the bear’s mercy. Despite a troubled production, the finished motion picture promises to be one of the greatest revenge stories ever put to film. Co-starring: Tom Hardy, Will Poulter and Domhnall Gleeson; written by González Iñárritu and Mark L. Smith (Vacancy, The Hole).
