Based on author David Grann's nonfiction bestseller, THE LOST CITY OF Z tells the incredible true story of British explorer Percy Fawcett (Charlie Hunnam), who journeys into the Amazon at the dawn of the 20th century and discovers evidence of a previously unknown, advanced civilization that may have once inhabited the region. Despite being ridiculed by the scientific establishment who regard indigenous populations as "savages," the determined Fawcett - supported by his devoted wife (Sienna Miller), son (Tom Holland) and aide-de-camp (Robert Pattinson) - returns time and again to his beloved jungle in an attempt to prove his case, culminating in his mysterious disappearance in 1925.
An epically scaled tale of courage and passion, told in writer/director James Gray's classic filmmaking style, THE LOST CITY OF Z is a stirring tribute to the exploratory spirit and a conflicted adventurer driven to the verge of obsession.

David Sims - THE ATLANTIC
"Hunnam's performance is charming and lived in, easily the best work he's ever done, and scene for scene, this is a splendid film."
Matt Zoller Seitz - ROGEREBERT.COM
"An incandescent reminder that the world's most beautiful mysteries endure precisely because they remain unsolved."
Justin Chang - LOS ANGELES TIMES
"Khondji's cinematography doesn't just complement Gray's movie, it deepens its meaning, strengthening the appeal of Fawcett's jungle, endlessly verdant and mysterious where home in England appears dull and monotone."
