Description

George Clooney and Sandra Bullock star in this award-winning sci-fi thriller directed by Alfonso Cuarón. Seasoned astronaut Matt Kowalsky (Clooney) is on his final mission in space, while medical engineer Dr. Ryan Stone (Bullock) is making her first outing on the Space Shuttle. While they are engaged in extra-vehicular activity, debris collides into the shuttle, damaging it irreparably.

Synopsis
Director Alfonso Cuaron's GRAVITY stars Sandra Bullock as Dr. Ryan Stone, a scientist on a space shuttle mission headed by astronaut Matt Kowalsky (George Clooney), a talkative, charismatic leader full of colorful stories that he shares with his crewmates as well as mission control. As the two are on a space walk, debris hits the area where they are working, and soon the pair finds themselves detached from their ship and stranded in space. While figuring out what steps they can take to save themselves, Stone grapples with a painful past that makes her consider giving up altogether. GRAVITY screened at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival.

Movie Critics
A.V. Club
"Cuarón expertly blends the epic with the intimate. For every stunning 3-D setpiece involving a dangerous hailstorm of metallic debris, there’s a moment of small tenderness..."
A.A. Dowd (3 Oct 2013, )
Chicago Sun-Times
"This is one of the most stunning visual treats of the year and one of the most unforgettable thrill rides in recent memory."
Richard Roeper (3 Oct 2013, )
Empire
5 stars out of 5 -- "No film since 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY has so fully communicated the absoluteness of space..."
Ian Nathan (1 Nov 2013, )
Entertainment Weekly
"GRAVITY is an awesome technological daydream of a movie....It's a tale of disaster and grief and survival rooted in the possibilities of space travel as they exist today." -- Grade: A
Owen Gleiberman (10 Oct 2013, )
Hollywood Reporter
"At once the most realistic and beautifully choreographed film ever set in space, GRAVITY is a thrillingly realized survival story spiked with interludes of breath-catching tension and startling surprise."
Todd McCarthy (28 Aug 2013, )
New York Times
"Mr. Cuarón succeeds by tethering almost unfathomably complex techniques — both digital and analog -- to a simple narrative. GRAVITY is less a science-fiction spectacle than a Jack London tale in orbit."
A. O. Scott (4 Oct 2013, )
RogerEbert.com
4 stars out of 4 -- "For all its stunning exteriors, it's really concerned with emotional interiors, and it goes about exploring them with simplicity and directness, letting the actors's faces and voices carry the burden of meaning."
Matt Zoller Seitz (4 Oct 2013, )
Rolling Stone
"Cuaron has taken 90 minutes of screen time and packed them with artistry, emotion and shattering suspense."
Peter Travers (12 Sep 2013, )
Total Film
5 stars out of 5 -- "[Bullock] delivers what could be the performance of her career here -- a high-wire act that blends physical dexterity, emotional vulnerability and mental toughness."
James Mottram (1 Nov 2013, )
USA Today
4 stars out of 4 -- "GRAVITY is the kind of enthralling, all-encompassing, giddy cinematic experience that surfaces once in a blue moon."
Claudia Puig (3 Oct 2013, )
Variety
"Alfonso Cuaron's white-knuckle space odyssey restores a sense of wonder, terror and possibility to the bigscreen..."
Justin Chang (28 Aug 2013, )
Wall Street Journal
"The result is an experience none of us could have dreamed of until now, the most beautiful popcorn movie ever made."
