Incredibly thought-provoking and moving
16 February 2016 | by (London) – See all my reviews

This is such a wonderful and charming film - it had a profound effect on me.

Following the reuniting of four exceptional but now elderly astronomers after many years, this documentary is a moving tale of old friendships and four very different but strong characters.

Much, much more than a film about astronomers and their field of work, this is a film about perseverance, determination and mortality. It is incredibly thought-provoking, sad and funny throughout.

Beautifully conceived and directed with some stunning photography. Highly recommended even for those with little interest in the science of astronomy.
