I’ve just watched a 3D film at the cinema. Yes! On a weekday morning.
The film was Gravity. Despite its minimal dialogue, it covers topics such as courage, mortality, bereavement and survival.
I made the mistake of taking my other half. He completely spoiled the drive home. When all I wanted to do was to reflect and have a good cry, all he wanted to do was to pull apart the film’s scientific and technical plausibility. Only breaking off from his detailed critique to tell me to slow down.
So what if a couple of the Laws of Physics were broken? At least one on the drive home. Gravity is visually stunning and totally gripping. And for a story set in Space it is surprisingly intimate. (No, not like that, although there’s no doubting the chemistry between the two lead actors even with their space helmets on.)
However, one thing was completely implausible: there is no way that Sandra Bullock’s character would not have known the colour of George Clooney’s eyes.
