“The Lost City” both honors the ‘author-becomes-adventurer’ trope and adds to it by calling back to the action-romance genre. Sandra Bullock follows in the footsteps Jodie Foster’s agoraphobic author in “Nim’s Island” (2008) and Brooke Shields’ romance writer Sophie in “A Castle for Christmas” (2021) as she plays a romance novelist who gets lost on her own adventure with a cover model.
The film boasts quite a stacked cast of stars and promises both rom-com laughs and adventure movie thrills.
