Based on a true story of climber Aron Ralston who's hand got trapped by a rock in 2003, 127 Hours is directed by Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire) and stars James Franco (Spiderman series). It has received critical acclaim and since its release, has been nominated for six Academy Awards, eight BAFTAS and three Golden Globes. The sheer strength of this movie encouraged me to see this.
~~~THOUGHTS ON PLOT~~~
Aron Ralston (James Franco) has a fun filled weekend planned- climbing in the canyons of Utah. But all the fun he's going to have (some crazy mountain biking and swimming with two pretty girls) ends within twenty minutes, when a rock falls and traps his hand against the canyon wall.
The remainder hour and a bit represents the 127 hours (5 days+) in which his hand is stuck- his thought process, mentality and values all flood into his mind as he struggles to free his hand, his eager strive for survival bringing him to extreme lengths to obtain freedom.
James Franco played the part of Aron Ralston extremely well. The emotional extremes he portrayed is great, though I can't get over his constant "stoned" expression, and his teeth- they are almost too perfect it scares me. I think his performance is great and he deserves his Oscar nomination, but doubt he'd win.
It was a lovely surprise to see Clémence Poésy in this movie even in the small parts she played... I remember her from Harry Potter and more recently, Gossip Girl.
overall, this story is suitable for boys outdoor hardcore..outdoor rules!!!
