Storyline

With the sudden death of his father, fourth-generation prospector Kenny Wells sees the family business, Washoe Mining, rapidly decline and him out of business. But ambitious Kenny has a dream, a vivid vision that promises mountains of brilliant and pure gold in the lush jungles of remote Indonesia; an aspiration which the well-known, yet still unlucky geologist Michael Acosta shares. Before long, down-on-his-luck Kenny will convince the eager geologist to become his partner and set off on an adventure deep into uncharted territory, while in the meantime, he would hunt for investors. Unfortunately though, as the risky expedition begins without a single speck of gold or the promise of it on the horizon, disease and failure will begin to threaten the short-lived dream. However, is it indeed an intriguingly bold and reckless fantasy? Written by Nick Riganas

Goofs

When Kenny Wells arrives in Jakarta, the long shot of Jakarta busy road is clearly contemporary. The taxis are all blue, the color of the popular Blue Bird Taxi brand in Jakarta. Yet the next shot, when he gets to his hotel, the taxis are suddenly all yellow and the car model is much older. See more »

Underrated movie with Matthew McConaughey at his best!
13 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

I don't know why this movie has been underrated so much. It deserves at least 8. If you liked Blow, or Wolf of Wall Street... this is just as good! Maybe not so deep story, but still, amazing Matthew does what he's supposed to.
