The Rescue (2021) -- documentary from the directors of Free Solo and Meru



From Academy Award-winning filmmakers E. Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin, THE RESCUE chronicles the enthralling, against-all-odds story that transfixed the world in 2018: the daring rescue of twelve boys and their coach from deep inside a flooded cave in Northern Thailand. The film premieres in select theaters this October.

Looks great. Such an amazing story. I assume it with premiere on Disney+ at some point?


They should send a copy of the documentary to Elon Musk with a note attached that says, “Fuck you!”

I saw this a few weeks back. I vaguely remember this story in the news, but I never paid attention to it. I had no clue what happened beyond some kids being missing. Such an incredible story. I'm not ashamed to admit that I got very emotional multiple times watching this in the theater. Highly recommended, and if you aren't familiar with the specifics, I'd recommend not googling before hand. Don't even watch the trailer. Go in blind.

One interesting thing I'll note, this version of the story is told completely from the perspective of the men doing the rescue. Apparently the rights to the survivors' story were a separate deal and Netflix is making a doc telling that side.

Gonna have to put the touch on my friend with Disney+ to watch this. Meru and Free Solo were amazing.

I finally got around to watching this on Disney+. It really is a fantastic documentary on an amazing story. I knew the outcome of the story before watching this but there was a lot that I didn’t know - particularly the way they attempted the rescue. There definitely a few spots that can make tear up a bit.

It actually helps restore my faith in humanity to see so many different people all working for a common goal.

A great documentary on an almost unbelievable subject. Highly recommended.

I love documentaries and this is a great one. I highly recommend it. As has already been said, it's very emotional.
