127 HOURS is a breathtaking, pulse-pounding journey into the mind of a man lost and alone. James Franco's bravura performance drives this gripping true story of a young adventurer whose will to live in the most unsettling of circumstances proves a triumph of sacrifice. That a fast-paced, expansive film is found at the bottom of a claustrophobic crevice is a tribute to director Danny Boyle's inventive mind and cements his stature as one of the world's most exciting filmmakers. 127 HOURS will echo for years like cries from a red rock canyon, reminding of the power of cinema to set us free.
