Cooper (McConaughey) is a pilot-turned-farmer who's recruited for an intergalactic mission to find humanity a new home. Despite awe and nail-biting tension, there's too much clunky exposition and cinematic clichés, and although Nolan's intentions to make a singular and cerebral film are admirable, it all gets a bit silly.
A special sci-fi themed film screening to coincide with tomorrow night’s Sir Patrick Moore Lecture at the Selsey Centre. Interstellar is a visually stunning and complex masterpiece from acclaimed director Christopher Nolan. Set in a near future in which the planet is slowly dying, the last hope for mankind is to set off into the farthest reaches of space and find a suitable new home. An imaginative and epic movie, dealing with complex ideas and offering breath-taking images, it is also surprisingly human and intimate, movingly exploring themes of parenthood, love, loss and duty. Not to be missed
