(2014) (Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway) (PG-13)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Science-Fiction: Four astronauts travel through a wormhole hoping to find a habitable planet to relocate Earth's population.
- 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.
