1) The Revenant (2015) - Leonardo DiCaprio plays Hugh Glass, a frontiersman who, in 1823, was attacked by a bear and left for dead by the rest of his party, but survived and tracked down the man who killed his son. This is based on a purportedly true story, but in the story I read, there was no mention of a son (or Indians pursuing Glass and the others, or French trappers), and Glass basically followed the guy through hundreds of miles of wilderness to retrieve his favorite rifle, which the guy took when he left him for dead (but I can see why they would add that stuff to the movie's story for dramatic effect).
