It’s no secret that one of the most effective types of films out there are ones that are based a true story, which made the survival drama EVEREST (which features an all-star cast including Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin, Jake Gyllenhaal and many more) an even more powerful and engaging experience. Super Marcey, Bede ‘The Terrible Australian’ Jermyn and Bea Harper saw the film recently and got together to discuss their thoughts on it. The following review in an audio format, as a back and forth discussion between the three of us. Enjoy!
IMDb Synopsis: On the morning of May 10, 1996, climbers from two expeditions start their final ascent toward the summit of Mount Everest, the highest point on Earth. With little warning, a violent storm strikes the mountain, engulfing the adventurers in one of the fiercest blizzards ever encountered by man. Challenged by the harshest conditions imaginable, the teams must endure blistering winds and freezing temperatures in an epic battle to survive against nearly impossible odds.
