Action, adventure and a new world
The March screening from Chorleywood Film Club March is The Lost City of Z (15). If a ripping adventure based on an incredible true story sounds right up your street, this film should be high on your ‘To Do list for this month.
The film tells how in the early years of the 20thCentury, the British cartographer, explorer and archaeologist Percy Fawcett journeyed into the Amazon. There he discovered evidence of a previously unknown civilisation that may once have existed in the region.
He was ridiculed by the scientific establishment, which viewed indigenous populations as savages. But, the determined Fawcett, supported by his devoted wife, son, and aide-de-camp, returned to his beloved jungle time and again in an attempt to prove his case.
Directed by James Gray and starring Charlie Hunnam, Sienna Miller, Robert Pattinson and Tom Holland, The Lost City of Z is a heroic tale of passion, courage and obsession. An epically-scaled tribute to the exploratory spirit.
