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.

Almost Convinced Out of Watching it...
21 September 2014 | by (Thailand) – See all my reviews

This film was excellent in my opinion. I loved the jabs at the 70's, I didn't find them cliché at all. There was absolutely no slapstick comedy in the entire film. Unless were talking about the high end of slapstick, I really don't enjoy that style of comedy. I also like black comedy a bit, and I guess you could say this was close to a black comedy.

The plot involves around the drama of a new co-captain arriving, who is a woman, Liv Tyler. The story unfolds from there mixing in a futuristic, but yet so backwards in the 70's feel. As social problems haven't much changed since the 70's. We can find this humorous because we live in the year 2014.

Anyways take a look if your in a calm relaxing mood, for a light but highly intelligent 'thinkers' comedy, not much else can be said without spoiling the suspension and comedy of the film.
