QUICK TAKE:
Science-Fiction: Four astronauts travel through a wormhole hoping to find a habitable planet to relocate Earth's population.
PLOT:
In the not-too-distant future, Earth suffers from extreme blight that has caused humanity's food supply to dwindle. Former test pilot and widower Cooper (MATTHEW McCONAUGHEY) ekes out a living as a corn farmer while caring for his teenage son, Tom (TIMOTHEE CHALAMET, who gives way to CASEY AFFLECK as an adult), and 10-year-old daughter, Murph (MACKENZIE FOY, who gives way to JESSICA CHASTAIN as an adult).

One day, Cooper and Murph discover an odd displacement of gravity in Murph's bedroom. Cooper is able to deduce coordinates within the phenomenon, and he and Murph drive to that spot on the map to discover a secret NASA installation. Inside the facility. Cooper comes in contact with project leaders Professor Brand (MICHAEL CAINE) and his daughter, Amelia (ANNE HATHAWAY), who tell Cooper of the discovery of a wormhole near Saturn and the space mission they are planning with Drs. Doyle (WES BENTLEY) and Romilly (DAVID GYASI). Their goal: to travel through the wormhole to determine if there is a habitable planet on the other side.

Cooper has to bid a heart-wrenching farewell to his kids, leaving them in the care of his father-in-law, Donald (JOHN LITHGOW). Murph takes his departure hard and continues to claim a ghost has invaded her room and is sending her messages -- one of them being for her father to "Stay." Cooper explains to her that he must leave and try and save humanity. He adds that due to Einstein's theory of relativity, the next time they see each other upon his return to Earth, they may even be the same age. Once out in space, though, Cooper and the other explorers encounter a series of mishaps -- including one with a deranged scientist named Mann (MATT DAMON) who went on a scouting mission before them -- that might mean they may never see their loved ones again or save humanity.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
It's an event film directed by the filmmaker of the most recent Batman films, so there should be some interest from teenagers
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For some intense, perilous action and brief strong language.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
