QUICK TAKE:
Drama: Forever changed by her 10-day stint in space, an astronaut tries to cope with her newfound perspective on her life and the world and the effect that has on her family life and career.
PLOT:
NASA astronaut Lucy Cola (NATALIE PORTMAN) has recently completed a 10-day stint in orbit and returned a changed woman. Now experiencing space wanderlust and thinking life on Earth is small compared to the cosmos, she yearns to return, and promises her husband, Drew (DAN STEVENS), that after one more mission they can have a baby. Until then, their surrogate child is their 16-year-old niece, Blue Iris (PEARL AMANDA DICKSON), whose mother is dead while her dad is a deadbeat father.

Lucy's grandmother, Nana (ELLEN BURSTYN), tells the teen to watch and learn from Lucy, but little do they know that she's recently fallen for fellow astronaut Mark Goodwin (JON HAMM) who's now separated from his wife. And Lucy doesn't have a clue that he's also seeing another younger astronaut, Erin Eccles (ZAZIE BEETZ), who's in the running for a coveted spot on an upcoming Space Shuttle mission.

As Lucy gets deeper into her affair with Mark while she relentlessly pursues being assigned to that mission, her type-A personality leads to questionable decisions and behavior, all of which threatens to derail everything she's worked for, both professionally and personally.

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.
