CRITIC'S PICK

'Stranded'

November 13, 2008|Kenneth Turan

Unless the movie gods smile on it and move it to another theater, tonight at the Nuart might be the last chance to see "Stranded: I've Come From a Plane That Crashed on the Mountains" on a big screen. This exceptional documentary tells one of the 20th century's best-known tales of survival, the story of the 16 young Uruguayans who stayed alive for 72 days in the Andes because they did the unthinkable and ate the flesh of those who died. Candid interviews and haunting re-creations make this a film impossible to forget and shows that we haven't really known the story at all.
