Moon - Official Trailer

I just watched this over the weekend. Definitely worth a gander, Moon is a contained psychological story, with nuanced performance from Rockwell, subtle visual design, and rhythm which plays as a one act one man show. The movie’s set up borrows heavily from Kubrick’s 2001 (and Tarkovsky’s Solaris) but it builds its own premise around the AI principle that is quite unique.

Summary
It is the near future. Astronaut Sam Bell is living on the far side of the moon, completing a three-year contract with Lunar Industries to mine Earths primary source of energy, Helium-3. It is a lonely job, made harder by a broken satellite that allows no live communications home. Taped messages are all Sam can send and receive. Thankfully, his time on the moon is nearly over, and Sam will be reunited with his wife, Tess, and their three-year-old daughter, Eve, in only a few short weeks. Finally, he will leave the isolation of Sarang, the moon base that has been his home for so long, and he will finally have someone to talk to beyond Gerty, the bases well-intentioned, but rather uncomplicated computer.

Starring Sam Rockwell, Matt Berry, Robin Chalk, Dominique McElligott and Kevin Spacey as the robot.
Duncan Jones (original story), Nathan Parker (screenplay), Directed by Duncan Jones.
