SUN­DAY EVER­EST

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - WEEK IN MOVIES -

8.30PM FOX­TEL, PRE­MIERE MOVIES ★★★

Sto­ically com­mit­ted to a wellchron­i­cled true story, Ever­est is above all an old-fash­ioned disas­ter movie. Just like The Per­fect Storm and other re­al­life en­tries in the genre, the in­ci­den­tals must be skimmed over. All that re­ally mat­ters is achiev­ing a con­vinc­ing de­pic­tion of a ter­ri­ble in­ci­dent that we all know is com­ing — in this case, the deaths of five clim­bers on Ever­est’s south face dur­ing a com­mer­cial group as­cent in May 1996. Stars Ja­son Clarke.
