Passengers (2016)

Director: Morten Tyldum. Cast: Jennifer Lawrence, Chris Pratt, Michael Sheen, Laurence Fishburne. 116 min. Rated PG-13. Sci-fi/Romance.

In this "Robinson Crusoe in space", one of 5,000 passengers of a deep space flight is woken up from hibernation, before reaching the destination, ... 90 years early. With only four actors (and an unnecessary cameo by Andy Garcia), the story-line is able to keep the viewer engaged in its slick but confined CGI-ridden setting. While the main criticism to the movie has been its ending, I didn't have a problem with it - not only because there wasn't any other way to close the circle, but also because it's as brave as Interstellar at approaching the impossibility of love in space.
