This movie is a slow-burn, beautiful story of adventure, passion, and discovery. Charlie Hunnam portrays English explorer Colonel Percival Fawcett with ease, as he takes us through a life journey of searching for The Lost City of Z.
The film entrenches us in the beauty of the Amazon rainforest, the political drama in England, and family drama at Fawcett's home. The movie is artfully slow, providing just enough to tell this story, but leaving us wanting more.
It is a spark of adventure, a breath of fresh air, and an achievement in film.
