Here are my thoughts on the much-anticipated latest film from director Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight trilogy, Memento), starring Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain and Michael Caine, among quite a number of other terrific actors. The film follows the riveting saga of an astronaut charged with leaving behind his beloved family as he goes searching outer space for the future home of the entire human race.What sets this film apart from the usual Sci-Fi drama is the amount of character development, human interaction and pure emotion. Add in the spectacular production work and the intelligence Nolan brings to the film and you have a winner. McConaguhey’s astronaut , Cooper is at the heart of it but there are outstanding performances all around. It might get a little confusing for some but stick with it. You will be richly rewarded.
Nolan and his brother Jonathan Nolan wrote the screenplay, with effects by Double Negative (which won an Oscar for its work on Nolan’s Inception) and cinematography by Hoyte Van Hoytema (Her, the next James Bond film). Interstellar was produced Christopher Nolan, Lynda Obst and Emma Thomas. It is being distributed by Paramount, Warner Bros and Legendary Pictures.
