Storyline

Guy is an experienced British fighter pilot who is in command of Britain's first manned mission to space. He has trained for this for three years at the height of the Cold War and now he is alone in space with a malfunctioning capsule. He has limited contact with the UK, some unusual communication with the US and some unorthodox communication with Tyuratam deep in Soviet Russia. Who will help him? Will he make the right choice?

Goofs

Taylor is contacted by NASA when his craft overflies the United States. While NASA was established by President Dwight Eisenhower in 1958 ( the year before the film's setting) the agency didn't take over the US spaceflight and launch role until early October of 1958. It's unlikely that Taylor would have known what NASA was and he would have likely had to have its role explained to him. He would have likely expected contact from National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics, NASA's predecessor. See more »

Intense, emotional British Sci-Fi Thriller
4 October 2016 | by See all my reviews

I had the opportunity to attend a screening of Capsule on Saturday night with my wife at the World of Film Festival in Glasgow. The event was hosted in an original vaudeville theatre which added to the unique experience

We both agreed that Capsule delivers an intense experience and one we both enjoyed. The story is strong (no spoilers), the production superb and the performance by Ed Kingsley I found to be mesmerising. Kingsley's performance drew us into the story which played out across his face which dominates the screen.

Definitely a film worth catching.
