Josh Hartnett stars in this gripping survival tale as former professional ice hockey player-turned-wayward crystal meth addict Eric LeMarque.

He heads into the Sierra Nevada mountains for a spot of snowboarding and ends up stranded in the wild for eight days after getting caught in a snowstorm.

Despite some cheesy flashbacks, this true-story adventure remains a compelling tale of doughty endurance, with a gritty Hartnett digging deep as the resilient, odds-defying hero.

This film premieres on Easter Monday at 10.20pm.
