Loretta Sage is a best-selling novelist who writes romantic adventure stories featuring a hero and his unimaginable adventures around the world. But she is not at all adventurous. Her life revolves around writing and her big city life until her latest book is published. Sage is on a reading tour with her assistant and the cover model of her novels Alan Caprison when she is kidnapped by a wealthy madman, Abigail Fairfax, who believes Sage’s latest novel holds the key to an ancient lost city and therefore of its treasures.
Here is the official synopsis of The Lost City –
“Brilliant but reclusive author Loretta Sage (Sandra Bullock) has spent her career writing about exotic locales in her popular romantic adventure novels starring handsome cover model Alan (Channing Tatum), who has dedicated her life embody the hero persona, “Dash.” While on a promotional tour for her new book with Alan, Loretta is kidnapped by an eccentric billionaire (Daniel Radcliffe) who hopes she can lead him to the treasure of the ancient lost city from her latest story. Wanting to prove he can be a hero in real life and not just on the pages of his books, Alan sets out to rescue him. Immersed in an epic jungle adventure, the unlikely duo will have to work together to survive the elements and find the ancient treasure before it’s lost forever.
During what appears to be a crazy and useless hunt, Sage realizes that there really could be a lost city and somehow he happened to write about something real. Meanwhile, Alan follows to save Loretta. Although he only poses for book covers, he considers himself the real protagonist. His goal is to rescue Sage from his captor and prove himself a hero. But he has no survival skills. Thus, the two find themselves stranded in the harsh tropical jungle with no idea or way to escape. However, they must find their way to the ancient treasure before Fairfax gets a greedy hold of them.
In short, The lost city is a fun film about a jungle adventure by a very oddly appropriate duo, who have no idea how to survive in the wild. With, of course, a hint of budding romance between a successful novelist and her fictional hero. He is also a novelist who made a fortune and fame thanks to his imagination. Although he wrote about wacky places, Sage never went there. The film also shows how it can happen when a writer’s imagination suddenly becomes real.
