127 Hours

[cert 15, 94 mins]

Based on a true story, 127 Hours concerns carefree adventurer Aron Ralston (James
Franco), who falls into a crevasse whilst cycling alone through the Moab desert in Utah.
As he falls to the bottom of the gap, his right arm is trapped beneath an immovable
boulder. With only a bottle of water, an old penknife and a digital camera in his possession,
Ralston documents what he believes will be the final precious hours of his life...until he
realises there is one way he could escape.

Man looks up whilst climbing between rock faces.
