Interstellar (dir. Christopher Nolan, 2014) – A team of astronauts travels through a wormhole, seeking a new inhabitable planet.
Interstellar balances science and narrative in an affecting story on the human condition, atop entrancing cinematic visuals.
Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey has stood the test of time, its visuals as spectacular as they had been in 1968. The movie’s influence remains prevalent in modern cinema. Add Interstellar to the list, but do not mistake it as a copy. Christopher Nolan’s own space venture begins from a rather different place, somewhere a little less lonely and more intimate in familial terms.
In the future on a dying Earth, former NASA pilot Cooper (Matthew McConaughey) and scientist Brand (Anne Hathaway) set off towards a wormhole in search of a new inhabitable planet. But the uncertain mission to ensure the human race’s survival comes with a great cost: leaving their loved ones behind.
