Sarah is a French astronaut training at the European Space Agency in Cologne. She is the only woman in the arduous program. She lives alone with Stella, her eight-year-old daughter. Sarah feels guilty that she cannot spend more time with her child. Her love is overpowering, unsettling. When Sarah is chosen to join the crew of a year-long space mission called Proxima, it creates chaos in the mother-daughter relationship.
Although Eva Green was raised in France, she attended an English-speaking school from a young age, and can speak both French and English flawlessly. Her French accent when speaking English in the movie is thus highly exaggerated. See more »
During the staff party at the beginning of the film, Mike's wife is first seen taking a picture with him and their kids. A few minutes later, they say hi and kiss as if they would meet then. See more »
I went to see this movie expecting nothing, I didn't even know it existed. We just had free tickets to the movies...
And it was actually great, Eva Green's acting I think deserved an Oscar, and the little girl acts very natural, and you feel for her.
Like other reviewers said, don't expect Sci-fi, it's a very realistic depiction of an astronaut's training, no glamour here, no Hollywood super clean and modern spin on it. Just real looking people working super hard to achieve a great feat.
Tl:Dr Don't expect Sci-fi, it's a very well written family drama during a very realistic and raw depiction of an astronaut training, the acting is great too.
