Certificate: 15 Running Time: 156 Minutes
Tagline: "Blood lost. Life found."
It's hardly a secret among film fans that Leonardo DiCaprio has for so long been overlooked by The Academy for the Oscar that so many believe he's deserved on more than one occasion. Maybe the crinklies just don't like him? Such has been the force of their snubbing in the view of many, that must surely be the answer! Maybe it's just been bad luck, but whatever the reason, critics and fans alike are now united in their belief that this will surely be Leo's year, for The Revenant has been hailed by all as a surefire winner for him. Whether he chose it for that reason or not, who can say? Probably not, but it definitely has all the ingredients necessary: it's a true story (allegedly) of a man overcoming a desperate situation, journeying far through treacherous conditions, in an attempt to return home against overwhelming odds. What could be more inspiring (and Academy-friendly) than that?
