A movie from 2015 which was inspired from real events. It received 7,1 on Imdb and its stars are Keira Knightley, Jake Gyllenhaal, Jason Clarke and many others. This drama lasts one hour and twenty minutes and presents the story of the people who went in a climbing expedition in 1996 on Mount Everest.
There is also a book titled ”Into Thin Air”, written by Jon Krakauer which details the author’s participation at the 1996 Mount Everest Disaster.
The adventure of the climbing expedition, actually the simultaneous expedition because there were many that took place on 10th of May, unfortunately finished with the death of 8 people. They were caught by a severe snow storm on the top of the mountain. The blizzard made them pass through many obstacles and for some of them the return to the camp was pretty difficult.
It is a movie about courage, passion and the powerful desire which determined those people to conquer one of the highest peaks (8,848 metres). A movie about survival, a beautiful adventure that takes place on the top of the world, with impressive imagery and a devastating end.
Although a tragic movie I liked it because of the journey and of the breathtaking landscape. If you didn’t see it yet, you should 😉
