More Details

Synopsis:
Sydney Pollack directs this vast and beautiful wilderness adventure in which Robert Redford plays Jeremiah Johnson. Adapted in part from Vardis Fisher's novel MOUNTAIN MAN, the story pays specific tribute to the reality of the trappers who actually roamed the West in the 1850s. Shot on location in the stunning and desolate snows of Utah, the entire film was made for less than four million dollars.

Notes:
Budget estimate: $3.5 million. Director Sydney Pollack mortgaged his home in order to finance the film.

Reviews:
"A contemplative classic about a loner's quest to find meaning on the unforgiving frontier....Stunning and quietly powerful..." -- Grade: A- - 05/04/2012 Entertainment Weekly
