Trivia:
The shuttle to take Steve and Donna to Space Station 8 is operated by Koenig Shipping.

A not-so-funny but poignant allegory, 2 October 2014
Author: xaniver

If you're expecting a comedy, you're better off looking elsewhere. Despite the label, I didn't find this film funny at all, but rather quite tragic with scattered moments of pitch-black humor.

That said, this was a rather clever and poignant allegory of middle- class suburban living aboard a spaceship floating through a region of space devoid of any other ships, inhabited planets or stations. It's this pervasive sense of isolation that becomes a recurring theme as we meet the motley crew of characters, each suffering from some form of emotional disconnect, not only from the rest of the station's crew, but from themselves as well. The themes present in this film are universal and are relevant today despite the retro setting.

These characters broke my heart, but none more so the leading trio of the captain, lieutenant and Ted played by Patrick Wilson, Liv Tyler and Matt Bomer respectively. Wilson's role in particular tugged at my heart. And of course Matt Bomer shines no matter what role he's given. His portrayal of Ted the welder comes across as extremely authentic despite the sometimes gauche elements of the film.

While I did enjoy the movie I found the ending a little abrupt and disappointing, as if they'd made their point and decided to leave it there instead of providing some sort of thematic resolution.

Don't watch Space Station 76 expecting a slick, CGI-tastic sci-fi movie. Similarly, don't go in expecting a raucously funny Austin Powers-esque romp. This movie is neither and so much more. It's a study of human nature and family drama, the secrets we keep from our loved ones and the lies we tell ourselves in order to survive the daily grind of existence.
