Young Israeli Yossi Ghinsberg (Daniel Radcliffe, Swiss Army Man, Harry Potter ) leaves a safe future behind to chase an improbable dream in the mysterious depths of the Amazon rainforest

For a year he journeys on the path well-travelled, but when he and two new fellow adventurers, Kevin Gale (Alex Russell, Unbroken) and Marcus Stamm (Joel Jackson, Peter Allen: Not the Boy Next Door ), meet the darkly charismatic Karl Ruchprecter (Thomas Kretschmann, Avengers: Age of Ultron ), and follow him into the jungle, what begins as the realisation of a dream soon turns into a harrowing psychological test of faith and fortitude.

Based on the true-life international best-selling memoir by Yossi Ghinsberg, this gut-churning tale of survival is worthy of placement next to the highly impressive likes of Into The Wild, Deliverance, Wild, 127 Hours, and Alive. In a career-best performance, Daniel Radcliffe is superb as Ghinsberg, a young man travelling the world in the early 1980s, against the better wishes of his strict parents.

A survival film that marches to the delirious beat of its own hallucinogenic drum, Jungle bows inventively before the bad guy to end all bad guys: Mother Nature.
