The Revenant tells the story of Hugh Glass, a frontiersman in the early 19th century, in the freezing winter of what is now Montana and South Dakota. Glass, as part of a crew of trappers, is ambushed by a tribe of Arikara American Natives. During the escape, Glass is badly mauled by a grizzly bear and abandoned by his party when they presume he is dead. When Glass reawakens to find that the group has murdered his son and left him for dead, he embarks on a lone journey for revenge that will take him across some of the harshest territory ever to be captured on film. The Revenant is famous for finally winning DiCaprio his first Best Actor Academy Award, and for winning Iñárritu his second Best Director Academy Award in two consecutive years.
