Moon takes giant leaps in science fiction

21 Mar


The moon sits up in the sky like Earth’s forgotten friend. Lonely, but very important to our existence. Director Duncan Jones’s film captures this idea with a modest five million dollar budget and Nathan Walker’s amazing script. The film relies upon its character and story, instead of hiding behind an array of special effects. Actor Sam Rockwell (Sam Bell) stars in basically, a “one-man show” about a corporate H3 astronaut/miner finishing up his three year contract on the moon, but with two weeks to go he is in a serious accident. His only companion is his computer/assistant GERTY (voice by Kevin Spacey) and an unexpected visitor. Audiences are not sure what or who to believe, but Rockwell’s performance is outstanding. Moon is a mind-bender that paves the way for future science fiction films.
