Print this article Few stories have attracted as much attention over the last several years as the plight of Aron Ralston. The hardship and unfathomable choices he faced after he became trapped by a boulder while hiking in Utah was told in the Oscar-nominated film "127 Hours." The tale of perseverance and self reliance comes to DVD on March 1.
The movie stars James Franco as Ralston, and is based on the mountain climber's autobiography "Between a Rock and a Hard Place." The story begins innocently enough, following Ralston on his trip through the Utah wilderness, but as he enters Blue John Canyon, a boulder jars loose and pins his arm against the wall of the canyon.
As Ralston realizes he is all alone, he begins to attempt to chip away at the the boulder to free himself, all while filming himself on his camera phone. After running out of water, he decides to do the unthinkable to free himself. He then makes a harrowing journey back home.
The film is directed by "Slumdog Millionaire" director Danny Boyle, and features an impressive performance from Franco. The role earned the "Milk" star a Best Actor nomination.
