Based on the novel by Michael Punke which is based on a 1915 poem The Song of Hugh Glass, the movie, the novel, and the poem both detail the life of Hugh Glass, whom is played by Leonardo DiCaprio in this movie.
I read the book back in high school and loved this survival and revenge story in the Old West. I really wanted to this movie in theaters but didn’t quite get the job done, so I have it on DVD now.
After some bad luck and a bear attack, the group he’s traveling with leaves him for dead. Hugh battles his way through injuries, attacks from a rival native tribe, and winter storms to find the man who betrayed him.
I’m finding that I have a lot of DiCaprio movies in my collection, something I wasn’t aware of until watching this movie. I guess that means he’s a good actor I like or he makes a lot of good movies.
