Dr. Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock) is a space engineer on her first shuttle mission with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (George Clooney) who is commanding his last flight before retiring. Unfortunately, the seemingly mundane mission takes a turn for the worst after a storm of debris destroys the shuttle and leaves the two of them marooned in space with no contact to control center, a depleting supply of oxygen, and little hope of survival.

“In a little more than 90 minutes [it] rewrites the rules of cinema as we have known them.” – A.O Scott, The New York Times
“… [Cuaron] turns ‘Gravity’ into a thing of transcendent beauty and terror. It’s more than a movie. It’s some kind of miracle.” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
“‘Gravity’ must be seen in theaters to be appreciated; the prospect of watching this movie on anything less than a 40-foot screen is tantamount to listening to Beethoven through a tin can and a string.” – Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
