Film Review: Interstellar

On November 7, 2014


By Sophia Whitfield
From acclaimed director Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight and Inception) comes the mesmerising Interstellar.

Earth can no longer provide for its inhabitants. Food is running out. A team of explorers led by Coop (Matthew McConaughey) set out into space to explore new horizons in the hope of discovering a sustainable home for humanity.

Stunning images of space loom large on the screen, set to a beautifully haunting soundtrack by Philip Glass.

Coop (Matthew McConaughey), a former NASA pilot, leaves his family behind to embark on his mission. His daughter Murph is unforgiving. As a single parent Coop leaves his teenage son and daughter in the charge of his father-in-law with no idea when he will return.

Under the guidance of the esteemed Dr Brand (Michael Caine) Coop feels bound by his mission to save humanity. He is accompanied by Brand’s daughter Amelia (Anne Hathaway), two engineers and the robot TARS.

Time is explored throughout the film, the way it changes in space with McConaughey aging at a different rate to his daughter Murph on Earth. In space, years can flash past in a couple of hours.

As Murph (Jessica Chastain) reaches adulthood she also goes to work for Dr Brand. Her only connection with her father has been video messages that she has left him over time. Coop picks up these messages, sometimes years after they have been left.

Interstellar is an extraordinary film, full of brilliance and wonder. It is definitely worth seeing at the IMAX to get the full visual impact of this film.

Interstellar is out in cinemas across Australia.
