Alejandro González Iñárritu’s The Revenant is one of the best titled films of 2015. It’s also one of the best films of the year overall. Inspired in part by the true exploits of famed frontiersman Hugh Glass, it stars Leonardo DiCaprio as Glass. He is the scout for a unit of trappers led by Captain Adam Henry (Domhnall Gleeson) and his son “Hawk” (Forrest Goodluck) is also traveling with the unit. Hawk is one-half Pawnee Indian and most of his conversations with his father are in Indian language.
