Human isolation and the will to live drives a person to perform drastic measures to survive
Experiences many visions and starts to act crazy the longer he is trapped
Aspects have to do with loved ones
Several are how he hurt them
Human isolation and Aron's desire to return to life
Broke his bones and amputated his arm
Descended 65 feet ("Aron Ralston")
4 hours of hiking ("Then & Now: Aron Ralston")
Liter and a half blood loss (Cohen)
Strong will to live
Honors Aron's story
Minor changes show his motivation to live and strong spirit
Never gave up on his life
After given this second chance he met his wife and had a baby
Visions, loneliness, and life- ultimately pushes him to free himself
Aron had a traumatizing wake up call to change his life, we can learn from this and never take the ones we love for granted and value not only our own life, but also the ones around us.
Real Life and Importance
"Between a Rock and a Hard Space"
Never actually happened
Director made it up
See inside of Aron's head
Shows "he realizes he’s made a terrible mistake, isolating himself, and he wants another chance to live life differently" (Hill)
