QUICK TAKE:
Drama: In the early 20th century, British explorer Percy Fawcett finds evidence of a previously unknown, ancient civilization while mapping then-uncharted Bolivia. It becomes his life's obsession.
PLOT:
Percy Fawcett (CHARLIE HUNNAM) is a British military officer at the turn of the 20th century, still living down the shame of an alcoholic father. He craves promotion and social status to give his wife, Nina (SIENNA MILLER), and their children a better life. So, he accepts an assignment from the Royal Geographic Society under the leadership of Sir George Goldie (IAN McDIARMID) to venture to South America and map the then-uncharted country of Bolivia.

Along for the ride is his faithful aide-de-camp, Henry Costin (ROBERT PATTINSON). The journey and subsequent trek through the Amazon jungle is treacherous and takes him away from Nina for nearly two years. But near the end of his adventure, Percy finds what he believes is proof of an ancient and surprisingly advanced civilization that he comes to call The Lost City of Z. Back in England, his findings are laughed at by the members of the Society, who hold to the notion that the jungles of Amazonia are filled only with savages and primitives.

Percy vows to return to the continent and find definitive proof, this time with a Society member named James Murray (ANGUS MACFADYEN) funding the trip. But the out-of-shape and weak-willed Murray proves more of a liability than an asset and ends up scuttling the whole expedition. Then, World War I hits and Percy, Costin, and his contemporaries are compelled to fight for England. Years after the war, Percy returns to Bolivia with his grown son, Jack (TOM HOLLAND), for perhaps one final attempt to find the fabled city.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.
