Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 10/22/2008
"[The film] offers an incontrovertible argument for the necessity of team spirit in the face of catastrophe....All 16 of the survivors, now middle-aged, tell the story in their own words."
Entertainment Weekly - 10/31/2008
"The movie, which combines testimony by those survivors with staged reenactments of their ordeal, is the opposite of sensational." -- Grade: B+
Los Angeles Times - 11/07/2008
"[A]n exceptional film, at once disturbing and elevating, deliberate yet powerful. It takes a story we all think we know, one of the 20th century's most familiar tales of resilience and survival, and demonstrates that we haven't really known it at all."

Product Description:

On October 13, 1972, a young rugby team called “The Old Christians” from Montevideo, Uruguay, boarded a plane for a match in Chile—and then vanished into thin air. Two days before Christmas, 16 of the 45 passengers miraculously resurfaced. They had managed to survive for 72 days after their plane crashed on a remote Andean glacier. Thirty-five years later, the survivors returned to the crash site—known as the Valley of Tears—to recount in their own words their harrowing story of defiant endurance, intense spirituality, and indestructible friendship. Previously documented in the worldwide bestseller Alive (and the film adaptation starring Ethan Hawke), this shocking true story finally gets the cinematic treatment it deserves. Visually breathtaking and crafted with riveting detail by documentary filmmaker (and childhood friend of the survivors) Gonzalo Arijòn with a masterful combination of on-location interviews, archival footage and reenactments, Stranded is a hauntingly powerful and spiritually moving celebration of humanity.
