During the Academy Awards ceremony in February 2016 a dream came true for one of the most talented and skilled actors in the world: Hollywood actor Leonardo DiCaprio won his very first Oscar after many fruitless nominations. With his role in the movie ‘The Revenant’, DiCaprio proved that he deserved this sought-after awards more than anyone.  Alejandro González Iñárritu, director of award-winning films like Babel and Birdman, placed a lot of value on presenting breathtaking scenes that form a thrilling, absolutely coherent and overall fantastic plot altogether.

In the depths of the American wilderness, Hugh Glass, played by Leonardo DiCaprio, is fighting to survive by all means. After being brutally attacked by a bear, the members of his group believe him to be dead and therefore leave him in the wilderness. Fueled by his love and longing for his son and incredible anger at the betrayal of John Fitzgerald, played by Tom Hardy, Hugh Glass manages to survive and fights his way through the wilderness. Led by a strong will and love for his family, he now wants to take revenge and is looking for his biggest enemy to make him count the cost.

The film is a unique experience a real movie fanatic should definitely not miss. It is a movie packed with beautiful pictures that were shot to perfection down to the smallest detail, which makes the Revenant one of the best movies in 2015.
