Free Solo is a stunning, intimate and unflinching portrait of the free soloist climber Alex Honnold, as he prepares to achieve his lifelong dream: climbing the face of the world’s most famous rock…the 3,000ft El Capitan in Yosemite National Park…without a rope.
Insider’s tip: “Both intimate and expansive, Free Solo is a documentary beautifully calculated to literally take your breath away. And it does” (Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times). Katherine Laidlaw, The Globe and Mail (Toronto), adds: “Whether you care about climbing or not, you’ll appreciate this tale of passion, discipline and, ultimately, transcendence. One incredible climb for one athlete, one quantum leap for mankind.” Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal: “Free Solo would be an exceptional piece of filmmaking if it confined itself to the physical poetry of Mr. Honnold’s achievements. But it gets at his inner life too, and goes a long way toward answering the unspoken question of what makes — or allows — him to do what he does.”
FREE SOLO is a Metacritic.com “MUST SEE.”
The film has 9 wins and 15 additional nominations for excellence.
