Description

A collection of four films directed by Danny Boyle. ‘127 Hours’ (2010) traces the true story of trapped hiker Aron Ralston's fight for survival. Setting out alone and telling no-one where he's going, Ralston (James Franco) begins a hiking expedition in the mountains of Utah.

Young, and with a zest for life, he takes rock-climbing in his stride, fearing nothing, with a permanent smile on his face. Soon after crossing paths with fellow hikers Kristi (Kate Mara) and Megan (Amber Tamblyn), however, Ralston becomes trapped in a remote canyon when a falling boulder crushes his arm. Over the following days, and with nobody to hear his calls for help, Ralston undergoes a gruelling fight for survival that tests his spirit to the limits, and ultimately decides whether he lives or dies.

The thriller ‘28 Days Later’ (2002) follows what could happen after a viral attack, with the virus so deadly that within seconds the infected person is taken over by a murderous rage, permanently. After 28 days there is only a handful of non-infected survivors, but the virus is not the only thing they have to contend with… In the futuristic thriller ‘Sunshine’ (2007) it's 50 years from now and the sun is on its way out, threatening mass destruction here on Earth.

It falls to eight sexy astronauts (including Cillian Murphy, Rose Byrne, Michelle Yeoh and Chris Evans) who have been dispatched to the heart of the solar system in a ship called, ominously, the Icarus II – to kickstart the sputtering star. Finally, in the multi-award winning ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ (2008), Jamal Malik (Dev Patel) is an 18-year-old street kid from the slums of Mumbai who has managed to get through to the final round on the Indian version of ‘Who Wants to Be a Millionaire’? But how can a young man from his background of poverty have acquired the knowledge to be only one correct answer away from winning 20 million rupees? With only one more question to be asked, however, the dream turns to nightmare. As the hooter sounds to signal the end of the show, Jamal is arrested and accused of cheating.

Nobody believes that he could really know all of the answers he has given. As Jamal tells the story of his life to the police, the reasons for his success begin to appear. Will Jamal be freed to hear the final question and, if so, will he know the answer?
