THE LOUISIANA INTERNATIONAL FILM SOCIETY in association THE LOUISIANA INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL, TWENTIETH CENTURY FOX FILM CORPORATION and CINEMARK THEATRES are proud to present a very special screening of one of the year’s most eagerly awaited films, THE REVENANT, directed by last years Academy Award Winner for Best Director Alejandro G. Inarritu (Birdman), and starring Leonardo DiCaprio in his most daring role to date and Tom Hardy (Mad Max: Fury Road). Inspired by true events, THE REVENANT is an immersive and visceral cinematic experience capturing one man’s epic adventure of survival and the extraordinary power of the human spirit. In an expedition of the uncharted American wilderness, legendary explorer Hugh Glass (DiCaprio) is brutally attacked by a bear and left for dead by members of his own hunting team. In a quest to survive, Glass endures unimaginable conditions as well as the betrayal of his confidant John Fitzgerald (Hardy). Guided by sheer will and the love of his family, Glass must endure a vicious winter in a relentless pursuit to live and find redemption and revenge on the man who tried to kill him. Already fast becoming the most celebrated film of this season with 5 Golden Globe Nominations including Best Picture, Best Actor (DiCaprio), Best Director (Inarritu), THE REVENANT is one of the most powerful films you will see this or any other year, and we are honored to be among the first to screen it.
Our screening will take place Wednesday, January 6th at 7:30pm, Cinemark’s Perkins Rowe Theatre. Please note: the film is rated R and contains scenes of powerful and disturbing violence. Due to overwhelming demand, only you plus one guest will be admitted. Please join us for this extraordinary event.
