The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Music - Daily Mail.

STRANGERS meet­ing on the plane and start­ing a re­la­tion­ship seems to be a favourite plot in ro­mance nov­els. This film, based on a novel by Charles Martin, adds another layer – a sur­vival story. Dr Ben Bass (Idris Elba) needs to get back to Bal­ti­more to per­form a surgery, and jour­nal­ist Alex Martin (Kate Winslet) needs to make it back for her wed­ding. Both are stuck at the air­port be­cause of bad weather. Des­per­ate, they hire a small plane to take them to Bal­ti­more. Un­for­tu­nately, the plane crashes on a moun­tain. They then have to make it back on their own re­ly­ing only on each other as no one knows where they are. Film­ing was done in Bri­tish Columbia, Canada in frigid weather. “Our cold­est day was mi­nus -38°C. You get out of the car and im­me­di­ately the in­sides of your nos­trils would freeze,” Winslet said in an in­ter­view with The film also fea­tures Der­mot Mul­roney, Beau Bridges and a dog.
