The Wildest Dream is a 2010 documentary film about George Mallory and Andrew Irvine's real life adventure and subsequent death climbing Mount Everest. The film tells two stories, one about how a team of climbers in 1999 found Mallory's body, who died attempting to reach the top of Mount Everest in 1924 and the other a biography of Mallory told through letters (read by Ralph Fienes and the late Natasha Richardson) and archival photos.

Other reviewers were less impressed with the film, such as Jeannette Catsoulis of The New York Times, who wrote "You may not believe it’s possible to bore people to death with a film about risking your life, but The Wildest Dream comes shockingly close."[3]
