ABOUT THE FILM

 

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.

—Bleecker Street Media

An incandescent reminder that the world's most beautiful mysteries endure precisely because they remain unsolved.

—Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times

Pictures with the grand sweep and dreamy energy of The Lost City of Z don't come along every year—they barely come along at all.

—Stephanie Zackarek, Time

Gray, even as he pushes at the edges of what is filmable, never loses his capacity for creating moments of rapturous beauty. See this thing on the biggest screen you can find.

—Bilge Ebiri, Village Voice

The grandeur of this movie is off the charts. For a certain kind of old-school film fan, someone who believes in shapely, classical proportions and an epic yarn told over time, it will be the revelation of the year.

—Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out

A film as transporting, profound and staggering in its emotional power as anything I've seen in the cinema in years.

—Robbie Collin, Daily Telegraph

ABOUT THE FILM

 

They were not supposed to be athletes. They were not supposed to get paid to play. They were not supposed to call the shots. But in 1950, 13 amateur women golfers battled society, finances and sometimes even each other to stake their claim to become professional sportswomen by creating the Ladies Professional Golf Association (The LPGA).

Long overdue, this film is about finally recognizing those unseen efforts and identifying [the founders] as true icons of sport and equality. The film isn't just for those who frequent the golf course. This film is for anyone who believes in the transformative power of defying the odds.

The Founders is an iconic story of thirteen women who battled society, prejudice and preconception to create a lasting, global sporting legacy.

With humour, grit and raw talent, these underdogs not only changed the course of women's sport but created a timeless story of redemption and endurance. Through rare, archival footage, historical re-enactments and current-day interviews with surviving founders and leading players, we tell that story—a special legacy—in this feature-length documentary.

While their male counterparts drew adoring crowds and handsome purses for their athletic achievements, [the founders] used money from their own pockets to stage tournaments in small, far-flung towns that questioned whether female golfers were even worth watching. Together, they logged thousands of miles a week just for the opportunity to tee off on courses they also had to groom! With the creation of the Ladies Professional Golf Association, the founders staked their claim on the green and forged a path for future women athletes to be celebrated and taken seriously.
