The Fiction vs The Real Life:
The movie (2015)
The setting of most of the story is the territory of South Dakotas where Hugh Glass and the others are guided through the forests of that area
The trapper Hugh Glass, after being indignantly abandoned by his wounded companions in the forest thinking that he would die there, tries to take revenge on his companions who betrayed him.
His rancor and desire for revenge allow him to fight against adversity and do everything necessary to achieve his goal.
Hugh Glass (Leonardo Dicaprio)
A frontiersman who guides Andrew Henry’s party of trappers along with his Pawnee son.
John Fitzgerald (Tom Hardy)
A trapper of Andrew Henry's party and the primary antagonist of the film.
The message of the movie
I believe that the message of the film is to fight for what you think is right and to honor what is sacred for you. .
Glass's motive for living was more a commitment to honor her son's memory and love, than hatred and a desire to take revenge on those who left him for dead and abandoned him
The main ideas
The consequences of the acts
The real life
He was an American frontier man, fur hunter, merchant, hunter, and explorer, known for his exploits in the Western United States in the first third of the 19th century.
Glass is famous, above all, for having made a legendary journey through the countryside after being attacked and injured by a grizzly bear.
Inspiration of the movie
A 1971 film, titled Man in the Wilderness, starring Richard Harris and John Huston, is inspired by this story. In 2015, the movie The Born Again, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, is also based on this same story.
The Hollywood movie is vastly different from the true story of Hugh Glass but still manages to create an Oscar-worthy story. Something very remarkable is that possibly the son never existed
