We're not surprised! If anyone could pull out another serious Oscar contender this early in the season, it would be Danny Boyle!
The director publicly debuted his latest film, 127 Hours - which chronicles the real life story of a man named Aron Ralston, who was forced to amputate his own arm after becoming stuck under a boulder - at the Toronto film festival, and it was reportedly met with a standing ovation from the audience!
Afterwards, Boyle, Rolston, and James Franco - who plays Rolston - took to the stage, and the real-life survivor thanked the filmmaker for convincing him to adapt his story to film.
“I have to say thank you to everyone who’s standing next to me on the stage. As a documentary it wouldn’t have been anywhere near as powerful as what that was. Thank you for convincing me otherwise.”
It sounds like this one's definitely going to to generate a lot more buzz than it's already starting to!
Definitely not an easy film to watch, but an important one to see!
What do U think?? Do U want to see 127 Hours??
