The climb before the fall


Hannah DiDio '25, Staff Writer

A thriller/survival film, “Fall”, released Aug. 12, 2022, has received 6.4 out of 10 stars and 79 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. The movie stars best friends Becky, played by Grace Caroline Currey, and Hunter, played by Virginia Gardner. The daring best friends push each other to their limits after enduring a traumatizing experience.

The movie starts out with an unexpected tragedy, but together, Becky and Hunter decide to overcome their fears. With some motivation, the two agree to climb two thousand feet to the top of a radio tower. The daring duo is hit with life- threatening situations, and the girls have to fight to survive.

Throughout the film, there is never a dull moment; I was constantly on the edge of my seat. Becky and Hunter were not prepared for what they were about to experience, which caused them to have to think outside the box and come up with brilliant ways to survive.

Towards the end of the movie there was a major plot-twist that changed the whole movie. There were many jaw dropping scenes, but the end had to have been my favorite part. With no way down, Becky has one last chance to be saved.

I would highly recommend watching this movie as it is definitely one of my new top ten movies. I was intrigued throughout the whole movie and eager to see what was going to happen next. I loved watching Becky and Hunter come up with ideas to survive and find out secrets about each other. The twist in the storyline was the best part of the movie and was very unexpected.
