Directed by Alfonso Cuarón
Be the first to see the Hollywood Blockbuster that doesn’t premiere until October 4th! Gravity is an hypnotic, exhilarating space thriller co-written, co-produced, co-edited and directed by Mexican Modern Master Alfonso Cuarón, a three time Academy Award nominee. The film stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, two surviving astronauts in a damaged space shuttle.Bullock as queasy first-timer Dr. Ryan Stone serves as the compelling emotional linchpin and Clooney as wisecracking mission commander Matt Kowalsky ends up becoming much more than simply light relief as the tale hurtles towards its conclusion.
Cuarón who co wrote the screenplay with his son Jonás is best known for his films A Little Princess, Y Tu Mamá También, Harry Potter and Prisoner of Azkaban and Children of Men. Four years in production, Gravity presents an artificial world that could only have been made today, providing a fantastic showcase of new possibilities. Cuaron’s long, lingering shots allow for phenomenal sequences of astronauts bashing into metal, parachute silk and one another, that the experience, while often unsettling and frightening, becomes pure cinematic nirvana. Gravity reaffirms his position as a filmmaker of uniquely thrilling excellence.
