127 Hours - Movie Synopsis & Plot

"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 over eight miles before he is finally rescued. Throughout his journey, Ralston recalls friends, lovers (Clemence Poesy), family, and the two hikers (Amber Tamblyn and Kate Mara) he met before his accident. Will they be the last two people he ever had the chance to meet? 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.

MOVIE REVIEW

The Oscar race just got a little more crowded as Danny Boyle's 127 Hours enters the mix. An energetic, beautifully shot and superbly acted film based on the harrowing true story of Aron Ralston, a devil-may-care adventurer who finds himself alone and trapped in an isolated canyon in Utah. His hand pinned between a rock and the canyon wall (or, "Between a Rock and a Hard Place" as the book title suggests), Ralston spent more than five days facing certain death before making a crucial decision to survive. 127 Hours is one of the best movies of 2010.
