Free Solo recently won the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature and also took home the Best Documentary award at the Bafta Film Awards.

National Geographic Documentary Films also brought Tim McGraw on board and he co-wrote with Lori McKenna and performed the original song Gravity specifically for Free Solo.

Free Solo has been called everything from a “Masterpiece” (The Seattle Times) to “Thrilling” (The San Francisco Chronicle).

With a nearly perfect score on Rotten Tomatoes and it’s lofty awards, the Free Solo documentary is absolutely not to be missed.
