Franco's performance as Ralston is riveting, drawing viewers into his transformational journey of self-discovery as he struggles to find the strength to preserve his life by cutting off part of his trapped arm. Director Boyle crafts a compelling exploration of the universal will to live more than just one man's adventuring accident.
