Longish take on a well-tested theme, but excellent acting
No need to give the game away: this adaptation of a Heinlein classic short is nicely directed and acted, but tries a bit hard to create the suspense of its twist. This makes the movie long in parts as it works on its building of clues, but most viewers will have guessed the ending well before the finish. All the cast put in convincing performances, with Snook stealing the show in what is essentially a three actor movie. Some back-story items are interesting- particularly the training of in-flight courtesans for the all-male astronauts - but other parts look more like fillers. In summary the movie is solid - but not exceptional in the way of, say, Inception. However - it is great to see Australia contributing to the SciFi body of work and there is nothing to be ashamed of in this contribution.
