"The grandeur of this movie is off the charts; you’ll almost explode with joy. For a certain kind of old-school film fan, someone who believes in shapely, classical proportions and an epic yarn told over time, it will be the revelation of the year"
- Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out
"The Lost City of Z is a film as transporting, profound and staggering in its emotional power as anything I’ve seen in the cinema in years. As a work of filmmaking, it’s an immediate classic, fit to stand beside the best of Werner Herzog and Stanley Kubrick"
- Robbie Collin, The Telegraph
Based on author David Grann’s nonfiction bestseller, The Lost City of Z tells the incredible true story of British explorer Percy Fawcett (the inspiration for Kipling’s poem The Explorer), who journeyed into the Amazon at the dawn of the 20th century and discovered 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, son and aide de camp - returns time and again to his beloved jungle in an attempt to prove his case, culminating in his mysterious disappearance in 1925.
