‘Gravity’ is not just a movie, it’s a whole experience.
‘Gravity’ opens with a floating scene of Earth and space and all the beauty a camera can fit into an image, or series of images, taken out in the vast universe. Ryan Stone, a medical engineer, and Matt Kowalski, an austronaut, are facing the same destiny of destruction when the Russians blow up their own satelite to cause an attack of debris, flying fiercely at bullet speed. Starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, left adrift in space thanks to anti-gravity, they are trying so desperately to save their lives after this crucial catastrophe. However, the horror doesn’t end there. After a series of unforunate events, Clooney’s amusing character disappears into space and Sandra finds herself completely alone, devastated, trying to figure out an escape plan while running out of oxygen.
What do you do when you’re left all by yourself, having nothing but your survival instincts conquered by fear and your oxygen slowly slipping away? How do you fight with the outer world that doesn’t seem to be helping you? And, most importantly, how do you overcome the state of weakness of your own inner world?
How do you stay strong when the challenge of surviving has become impossible?
From the sense of helplessness to the rebirth of hope, from the loosened courage to the recollected adrenaline rush of feeling alive, ‘Gravity’ goes into an exploration of how far the human spirit can go and survive. Or is it limitless the potential we as human beings have?
