Home / SHOWBITZ Tom Hardy is Leonardo Dicaprio’s mark mirror in ‘The Revenant’

The Revenant picked up 12 major nominations in the most awaited annual awards night, the 88th Oscar Awards, including Tom Hardy’s Best Supporting Actor nomination as John Fitzgerald opposite Leonardo DiCaprio’s Hugh Glass.

The Revenant walks us through the brief yet pivotal history of the American fur trade, full of tales of daring but also grave destruction. Though the fur trade forged the romantic image of the mountain man – idealized loners purportedly as rugged as the wilderness they felt beholden to tame — the fur trade was also very much a business. In a sense it ushered in the first emergence of the archetypal Western entrepreneur, the visionary iconoclast who forges ahead answerable to no one but himself.
