Wilderness adventure movie The Revenant ruled the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA).

The Revenant was named the best film. Leonardo DiCaprio grabbed the award for best actor and Alejandro G Inarritu best director.

This epic movie tells the story of the brutal survival of Hugh Glass, a frontiersman, who was abandoned in the wild by his hunting team. Glass fights against all odds to remain alive to see his family once again.

DiCaprio accepting his award said he was ‘humbled and honoured’, while the Mexican director Inarritu said the actor’s talent and commitment led the movie to reach such high levels.

Meanwhile, Australian film Mad Max also picked four awards.
