Daniel Radcliffe’s journey deep into the Bolivian rainforest turns into a terrifying battle for survival, in JUNGLE, a true-life thriller based on the bestselling memoir by Israeli explorer Yossi Ghinsberg. Seeking to escape the grind of ordinary life, the naive young Ghinsberg sets off into the Amazon with two backpacking pals, an American photographer and a Swiss teacher. When their shadowy guide takes them off-trail to explore uncharted territory, what was supposed to be the adventure of a lifetime turns disastrous, as a stranded Ghinsberg confronts nature’s deadliest threats and man’s darkest elements. Continuing to push his post-Harry Potter career to the extreme, Radcliffe undergoes a shocking physical and emotional transformation to portray the agonized Israeli trekker’s descent into hell.
