Based on David Grann’s 2009 book by the same name, “The Lost City of Z” follows British explorer Percy Fawcett (played by Charlie Hunnam) who attempted to find an ancient lost city in the Amazon and finally disappeared in 1925 along with his son (Tom Holland). The film also stars Robert Pattinson (“Maps to the Stars”), Sienna Miller (“Mississippi Grind”), and more.

Gray has written and directed six previous films, including “The Immigrant,” “Two Lovers,” “We Own The Night,” and “The Yards.” All four of those films premiered in competition at the Cannes Film Festival for the Palme D’Or.
