Golden Globe® winning actor James Franco (Milk, Spiderman) plays Aron Ralston, an extreme sports enthusiast who enjoys nothing more than exploring his natural surroundings and pushing is body to the limit. One weekend he goes canyoneering in the breath taking and remote Blue John Canyon in Utah to do what he loves most, but without telling anyone where he is going, and leaving his mobile phone behind…
Aron is in the middle of a routine climb when a boulder suddenly becomes dislodged just above him crashing onto his arm and leaving him trapped in solitude inside a dark, isolated canyon. Over the next five days Ralston does everything he can to prolong his life while wrestling with hunger, thirst, flashbacks and hallucinations.
This breathtaking film takes you on a journey through the mind of a man forced to come to terms with himself in the most extreme of circumstances. 127 Hours is a visceral, thrilling ride that demonstrates what the human mind can achieve when it chooses to fight for life.
