A young man who survives a disaster at sea is hurtled into an epic journey of adventure and discovery. While cast away, he forms an unexpected connection with another survivor: a fearsome Bengal tiger.
Dr. Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock) is a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalski (George Clooney) in command of his last flight before retiring. But on a seemingly routine spacewalk, disaster strikes. The shuttle is destroyed, leaving Stone and Kowalsky completely alone - tethered to nothing but each other and spiraling out into the blackness.Written by
The film's cascade of debris is a very real possibility. This scenario is known as the Kessler syndrome, named after N.A.S.A. scientist Donald J. Kessler who first proposed the theory in 1978. A cascading Kessler syndrome involving an object the size of the International Space Station would trigger a catastrophic chain-reaction of debris. The orbiting debris field would make it impossible to launch space exploration missions or satellites for many decades. See more »
As the Shenzhou capsule re-enters the atmosphere, the resulting drag would cause not only the burning on the outside, but terrific G-forces as the capsule decelerates from orbital speeds. Yet a ballpoint pen is seen still floating weightlessly in the capsule, when it (not to mention Stone) should have been pinned to the forward bulkhead. See more »

This is a break through kind of film. Cuaron crossed boundaries and he didn't have the technology to do it, he create it. Just like genius do. It has been a really long time since you could go to a see a movie and experience this kind of translated emotions as vividly and organically and in so many different levels And will be some time for the next one. For the story, you can go as deep as YOU like, and in as many different approaches as each person who watch it. You choose. ..Cuaron guide us into an amazing out of this earth journey. And knowing all the things he had to achieve to do it it's just amazing. Amazing Bullock..Best film ever. Can't imagine anybody else for it. Great with Clooney ( wondering why they never worked together before) Can't wait for everybody have the opportunity to watch it, and share the experience!
