Reluctance to watch any films featuring one main character stuck in a situation facing life or death for an hour and a half occurred before watching this. I was wrong to doubt. The riveting tale of Aron Ralston’s autobiography ‘Between a Rock and a Hard Place’ was brought to us by Danny Boyle. The pace of the film is what I had initial reservations about, this was the least of my fears with breathe taking wide shots of the Canyon, contrasted with fine detailed close up shots of Aron salvaging the last drops of life from his water bottle. A must see, especially if you’re squeamish. 8
