Bear Grylls could not have written a better script for The Revenant or it may be better said that Hugh Glass could have been the inspiration for Grylls and his excursions into the wild. Academy- Award winning director Alejandro González Iñárritu follows up his universally acclaimed film, Birdman with this extreme survival tale. He shares the true-to-life journey of wilderness guide, Hugh Glass (Leonardo DiCaprio), as he leads a hunting expedition through the uncharted frontier of the young American landscape. After losing most of his hunting party to an attack from an indian raiding party and then being viciously attacked by a bear, he is left for dead by this small band of men because of the counsel and actions of veteran trapper, John Fitzgerald (Tom Hardy). Survival becomes a primal motivation for Glass, if he is able to see Fitzgerald brought to justice. The frontier man must reach deep into his will to live and overcome great physical odds of the wilderness as his story of survival, redemption and revenge unfolds on the unforgiving landscape.
