The breathtakingly barren mountains of Scotland make the perfect setting for the British thriller A Lonely Place to Die. Hauntingly poetic, the film is the story of a group of rock climbers who discover a little girl buried in a box out in the wilderness. As soon as they rescue her, the climbers become targets for the ruthless kidnappers who buried her alive while they negotiated her ransom. Fighting the elements and their pursuers, the mountaineers race to safety, their young charge in tow. Packed with thrilling action and climbing scenes, the film’s pace is relentless. Melissa George and Alec Newman are among the mountaineers, while Holly Boyd appears as the little girl. 6:30 p.m. Alamo Drafthouse/West Oaks, 1000 West Oaks.
