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.
