Synopsis:
127 Hours is the new film from Danny Boyle, the Academy Award® winning director of 2008’s Best Picture, Slumdog Millionaire. 127 Hours is the true story of mountain climber Aron Ralston’s (James Franco) remarkable adventure to save himself after a fallen boulder crashes on his arm and traps him in an isolated canyon in Utah. Over the next five days Ralston examines his life and survives the elements to finally discover he has the courage and the wherewithal to extricate himself by any means necessary, scale a 65-foot wall and hike more than eight miles before he is finally rescued. Throughout his journey, Ralston recalls friends, lovers (Clémence Poésy), family, and the last two people he ever had the chance to meet? This is a visceral, thrilling story that will take an audience on a never before experienced journey and prove what we can do when we choose life.
