There is a reason Leonardo DiCaprio (finally!) nabbed himself an Oscar for his turn as a 19th century frontiersman fighting for survival in Alejandro González Iñárritu’s (BIRDMAN) epic THE REVENANT – because he deserved it. Inspired by the true story of a fur trader named Hugh Glass (DiCaprio) who fought off a bear, was left for dead and lived to tell the tale, THE REVENANT takes the archetypical “man vs. nature” theme into revenge flick territory that contrasts nicely against an uncomprimosingly beatiful, if not breathtakingly harsh, backdrop. It is very much DiCaprio’s film; his remarkably committed performance supplies the fuel for an absorbing drama that offers punishing challenges — and rich rewards.

THE REVENANT (Alejandro González Iñárritu, 2015 / 156 mins / 14A) While exploring the uncharted wilderness in 1823, legendary frontiersman Hugh Glass (Leonardo DiCaprio) sustains injuries from a brutal bear attack. When his hunting team leaves him for dead, Glass must utilize his survival skills to find a way back home to his beloved family. Grief-stricken and fueled by vengeance, Glass treks through the wintry terrain to track down John Fitzgerald (Tom Hardy), the former confidant who betrayed and abandoned him.
