What an INTENSE movie.
I was really skeptical about this movie at first. I’m not a big fan of Aron Ralston. It was his own stupidity that caused him to be in the mess he was in and being someone who should know ALL of the right things to do, he did the exact oposite.
But I got an invite to a cast and crew Q&A screening, so I figured I’d go check it out and see what was up.
And boy was I glad that I went. At times, I felt like I was going to throw up, other times there were tears in the corner of my eye. The director has done an amazing time bringing you INTO the movie. Making it feel like you’re there and putting you into the emotions of the character.
I’m actually going to highly suggest you go see this movie, in the theater, on the biggest screen you can find. And sit in the first 3 rows. 😉

Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire) re-teams with writer Simon Beaufoy and producer Christian Colson to tell the harrowing story of real-life mountain climber Aron Ralston (James Franco), who literally cut himself loose from danger — and lived to tell about it. When sliding rock pinned his right forearm under a boulder during a climb in the Utah mountains, Ralston resorted to his basest survival instincts to stay alive.
