Starring Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey as Kenny Wells, a prospector desperate for a lucky break, he teams up with a similarly eager geologist and sets off on an amazing journey to find gold in the uncharted jungle of Indonesia. Getting the gold was hard, but keeping it would be even harder, sparking an adventure through the most powerful boardrooms of Wall Street. The film is inspired by a true story and based on The Treasure of the Sierra Madre which was a book made into a movie back in 1948. The two main characters in the 1948 film, which are now played by Matthew McConaughey and Edgar Ramírez, were played by Humphrey Bogart and Tim Holt.
