FREE SOLO is an edge-of-your seat thriller and an inspiring portrait of Alex Honnold, an athlete who challenges both his body and his beliefs on a quest to triumph over the impossible, revealing the personal toll of excellence.

As the climber begins his training, the armor of invincibility he's built up over decades unexpectedly breaks apart when Honnold begins to fall in love, threatening his focus and giving way to injury and setbacks. Directors Jimmy Chin and Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi succeed in beautifully capturing deeply human moments with Honnold as well as the death-defying climb with exquisite artistry and masterful, vertigo-inducing camerawork.

  • 5 stars "Free Solo is INCREDIBLE. The cinema photography is amazing. But what Alex did blows everything away. If you like suspense/thrillers you must see this movie, you will be on the edge of your seat and you already know the ending."
  • 3 stars "He is really good at climbing mountains."
  • 5 stars "One of the greatest individual achievements of all time. And the photography and overall direction are in a class by themselves, as well. The Emmy award for Best Documentary awaits, no questions about it."
