WHAT is it that sets Bri­tish di­rec­tor Danny Boyle apart part from other main­stream film­mak­ers? Where most prom­ise es­capism, apism, Boyle ( Slum­dog Mil­lion­aire) deals only in no- es­capism. Adapted dapted from the best- sell­ing mem­oirs of Aron Ral­ston, 127 Hours is out to move view­ers with the tale of a man who can­not move at all. Af­ter a hik­ing ac­ci­dent, Ral­ston ( James s Franco, pic­tured) is trapped in­side a canyon crevasse with his right arm pinned un­der an 800kg rock. What Ral­ston must ust do to free him­self bor­ders on the un­think­able, but in Boyle’s oyle’s as­sured hands, not the un- filmable. An in­spired and d in­spir­ing cin­ema ex­pe­ri­ence.
