PG-13 | | Adventure, Biography, Drama
A true-life drama, centering on British explorer Col. Percival Fawcett, who disappeared whilst searching for a mysterious city in the Amazon in the 1920s.
Although Fawcett vanished from view in 1925, his legend endured in fictional form, beginning with the character of Professor Challenger in The Lost World. Sir Conan Doyle modeled the intrepid hero of his 1912 novel on Fawcett, with whom he was close friends.
You don't care about us, you don't even care about going home. You only care about your lost city.
The closed captions are incorrect in a number of places, most egregiously at 1:21:08, when the typist says, "It looks like a war with Fritz [meaning Germany]", which is captioned as, "It looks like a war with France." France and England, of course, were allies during WWI.
Originally rated R for "brief violence", the distributor chose to cut the movie to secure a PG-13 rating.
