What really brings the past alive in The Wildest Dream is those glorious voices.

Geffen captures stunning images of the mountain as he follows Anker and Houlding in Mallory's footsteps.
| Original Score: 7/10
The movie excels not in the plentiful shots of Everest's majesty, but in its nuanced depiction of Mallory through interviews, archival footage and letters.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
