    “Your parents know I’m black don’t they?” asks Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) as girlfriend Rose (Allison Williams) prepares to take him to the lakeside estates of Upstate New York to meet the, on the face of it, middle-class liberal mum and dad.

The Revenant, which translates roughly as someone who returns after death or a long absence, is DiCaprio’s first collaboration with notoriously-method director Alejandro Gonzales Inarritu, who […]
