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. DIR/SCR/PROD James Gray, from the book "The Lost City of Z: A Tale of Deadly Obsession in the Amazon" by David Grann; PROD Dede Gardner, Jeremy Kleiner, Anthony Katagas, Dale Armin Johnson. U.S., 2016, color, 141 min. RATED PG-13

With WWII London emptied of men now fighting at the Front, Catrin Cole (Gemma Arterton, GEMMA BOVERY) lands herself a job writing copy for propaganda films that need "a woman's touch." Her natural flair quickly gets her noticed by dashing movie producer Buckley (Sam Claflin, THE HUNGER GAMES) whose path would never have crossed hers in peacetime. With the country's morale at stake, Catrin, Buckley and a colorful crew work furiously to make a film that will warm the hearts of the nation. As bombs are dropping all around them, Catrin discovers there is as much drama, comedy and passion behind the camera as there is onscreen. This charming love-letter to filmmaking also stars Bill Nighy (LOVE ACTUALLY), Jack Huston (AMERICAN HUSTLE), Richard E. Grant (WITHNAIL & I), Jake Lacy (GIRLS) and Jeremy Irons (THE MAN IN THE IRON MASK); directed by Lone Scherfig (AN EDUCATION).
