Inspired by a true story, the film follows mountain climber Aron Ralston’s doomed adventure in the canyons of southern Utah. His excruciating struggle to free himself after his arm gets trapped beneath a boulder yielded some of the year’s most intense visceral scenes.
If Ralston had packed enough rations, he would have enjoyed classic campfire grub such as this flavorful chili—which also happens to be the perfect winter potluck dish.
