A great story, beautifully filmed and acted about two Victorian era
explorers. Irish-born Sir Richard Francis Burton, one of the greatest
explorers in history, is in search of knowledge. English-born dilletante
John Hanning Speke joins Burton's quest in search of glory. Together they
search for the answer to one of the most elusive geographical questions of
their time - what is the Nile's source? The film accurately shows how the
Royal Geographical Society and other outside interests played Burton and
Speke against each other for their own gain.
The film's tagline really says it all: "Two strangers made friends by a savage world. Two friends made enemies by a civilized world."
