Storyline

Space Station 76 is a refueling satellite near an alternate-reality Earth, circa 1976. Jessica arrives to serve as the station's new first mate. While she narrates a piece about how she likes the predictability of asteroids, some placidly drifting asteroids are shown colliding in chain-reaction fashion. While at first the station appears normal and the people friendly, Jessica soon discovers that the people on board have issues due to the isolation and stress of being cooped up with one another in a relatively small space far from Earth. This is in addition the usual problems people struggle with, such as infidelity, loneliness, depression, and drug abuse. She tries to make friends and fit in, but, unable to connect meaningfully with anyone, she becomes lonely. She's baffled and disillusioned by the stiff and irritable Captain Glenn, who harbors secrets of his own. She finds herself drawn to Ted, a lonely, married crewman, and his 7 year-old daughter, Sunshine. Ted yearns to reconnect... Written by Ken B.

Just not what you expect these days and funny in its own way
26 September 2014 | by See all my reviews

Reading the comments and ratings, this movie not seems to be watched by the right people. I think the problem seems to be in the expectations and the movie being something different than what we are used to these days, if you read the plot of the movie.

If you expect a normal sci-fi, where the sci-fi part is important for the story, it's not, it's just the setting. The cheap 70's sci-fi look is humor for me.

If you expect a comedy, with clear, loud jokes, or people being funny, it's not. I found the humor more in the irony and in the annoyingness and painfulness of the characters.

If you expect a spectacular blockbuster, it's not, it's almost more an art-house movie.

If you expect a serious drama, it's not, although it is about loneliness and emptiness in people.

So yes, I actually did enjoy it, because it was different and well made.
