Director - Danny Boyle
Genre - Adventure/Drama/Thriller
Danny Boyle is a director who likes to challenge himself with different genres and situations and we have tremendous respect for him based on that. Every one of his films have not been similarly threaded. James Franco is Aron Ralston in this picture based on a real, unfortunate incident involving Ralston. A mountain climber/free spirit, Ralston is the kind of happy go lucky daredevil you wish you were but were too afraid to be. Then one day, Ralston makes a wrong move and you wish you never, ever end up like him. On one of his adventures, Ralston is literally caught between a rock and a hard place. Stuck and with not nearly enough provisions to sustain his life, he has to summon all his strength and will to live. Battling with nature's a bitch and he is trapped in a place far from civilization. Boyle's direction of a movie consisting predominantly of only one man talking to himself is as invigorating as one with a cast of thousands. James Franco will go a long way in this business judging by his fearless acting here. A story which imparts on us the need to cherish being alive.
