The film The Space Between Us was released on February 3, 2017. It is rated PG-13 and is listed as science fiction, drama, and romance. Sarah Elliot leads a group of scientists to a base established on Mars. While there, she discovers that she is pregnant and gives birth to Gardner (Asa Butterfield). When he is sixteen, he finds a way to get to Earth, in hopes of finding his father. When he arrives on Earth, he escapes NASA and gets together with “Tulsa” (Britt Robertson) a girl he communicated with while he was on Mars.
I wanted to see this movie when it first came out, but it apparently wasn’t in theaters that long. This is a shame because I thought it was an excellent movie. All of the actors did a fantastic job portraying their characters, especially Asa Butterfield. The directing was also very good. The story line was above average, but I suspect some of the science wasn’t feasible. I thought that Gary Oldman, as the director of the Mars project, was good. I’ve enjoyed Mr. Oldman’s work ever since I saw him in The Fifth Element. I almost didn’t recognize him because of his beard.
I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. The romance elements were not sickening, in fact they added to the characters’ personalities. There was some humor in the story, which I always appreciate. I give this 5 stars out of 5 and have added it to my list.
