Synopsis

Leading fur-hunters on an expedition across unchartered American territory in 1820, legendary frontiersman Hugh Glass is ferociously attacked by a bear. Seriously injured, his fellow huntsmen are tempted with a bonus to get him back to base alive. However, corrupted by prejudice and money they leave him to die, or so they think. Based on a true story the film tracks Glass’ gruelling trek back home and bitter revenge on his betrayers, against wild, punishing terrain. Cinematically epic and overwhelmingly visceral the film immerses the audience in every grisly detail of Glass’ survival, mentally and physically. Led by a compelling performance from Leonardo DiCaprio, the film is a visually wrought personal odyssey and a thought-provoking reflection on the limits of human fears and emotions in the face of mortality.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
