Inspired by extraordinary true events, this nail-biting thriller tells the story of two different expeditions to the summit of the world’s highest mountain that encountered one of the severest snowstorms the region has ever experienced. Facing insurmountable obstacles and the harshest of elements, this film vividly captures the climber’s fates, as their challenge to scale the mountain becomes a desperate struggle for survival. Adapted from a series of non-fiction books about the incident and with an unusual focus on character for a film of this scale, this is intense, exhilarating cinema, with a strong emotional core.
Danny Boyle uses all the creative tricks to ensure this survival against all odds tale is never less than gripping.
