Jeremiah Johnson

Sydney Pollack's 1972 drama is a simple film about a man determined to live life deliberately, no matter what the hardships. Robert Redford turns in a sturdy performance as Johnson, who journeys up the Rocky Mountains in the 1830s to find the meaning of life . The dialogue is spare, the scenery the real star. Satisfying and impressive. With Will Geer.
