'Gravity', a weightless, nail biting and aesthetically pleasing film directed by Oscar nominee Alfonso Cuaron will literally have you grasping the edges of your seat.
Starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, 'Gravity,' gives one glimpse into the grueling and all engulfing task that face those who venture into space. The most captivating thing is that this is not science fiction; this is reality. People work in space every day and accidents are bound to happen.
Justin Craig, a writer for Fox.com, claimed the movie set the standard for the genre. Space is an entirely unimaginable place. There is nothing there, as the film shows you can get completely swallowed. That idea alone sends a shiver down your spine as you watch.
It was truly inspiring to watch Bullock, who plays a specialist on site to repair software on a shuttle, and Clooney a seasoned vet on his last “walk.” Bullock’s character is a tragic one as she is ready to give up from the start after suffering great losses in her character’s Earth-side life.
The film is truly breathtaking as Emmanuel Lubezki’s photography takes the viewer into the heart of space. It is a fantastic portrayal of an idea that even in the bleak hopeless forgetful environment of space there is always a chance, a spark, and hope. Grab your 3D glasses and get your ticket!
