Touching the Void

Last night I went out to see Touching the Void with Brad. The film is the story of two climbers, Joe Simpson and Simon Yates, who took on a mountain in the Andes. During the descent, Joe breaks his leg and the two are faced with getting down the mountain.

I won't go into the details, but the harrowing tale of survival is truly amazing. This isn't a good novel or interesting screenplay, this is real. This really happened to two men.

You should go see this movie. I won't spoil anything, but since the two climbers are interviewed in the film, you know they both survive. But the story of how they survive is astounding.
