As usual I'll be in the upstairs bar from around 5.30
How could a physics teacher not go to a film called gravity? Plus it has George Clooney AND Sandra Bullock in it, so everyone has someone to go gooey about.
This is the blurb:
"The fate of astronauts marooned in space might seem a familiar plotline, but as conceived by director Cuarón (CHILDREN OF MEN), it becomes a visual magnum opus as well as drama of the highest order.
Clooney is wisecracking space veteran Kowalsky, Bullock the rookie scientist Stone, and in a staggering 13-minute opening take we see her drifting helplessly from a wrecked space shuttle. Clooney is no stranger to the isolation of space – he starred in Soderbergh’s SOLARIS remake – but in GRAVITY his emotional reach extends even further as their battle for survival intensifies, and in her range of reactions to their worsening predicament, Bullock’s performance matches his.
Above all, though, it’s the technical achievements of Cuarón and cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki that will leave you reeling with amazement. "
A nice early start and the cheap Tuesday ticket might lead to a trip to the Chilli Pickle Bistro afterwards. If there is any interest shown I'll book a table.
