Praz Gold : MOON (2009)
2009 was a impressive year for Sci-Fi. Both DISTRICT 9 and AVATAR blew viewers away world-wide however in amongst the biggies comes a quieter Sci-fi film which is about as humane as the brilliant Jodie Foster film CONTACT.
Set in a future not long from now (2030-ish I think). Sam Bell (Sam Rockwell in a tour-de-force performance) is a astronaut, working on a lunar base of some sort. He is the only person on the entire base, only assisted by an all-knowing robot called GERTY (voiced by Kevin Spacey). He has been stationed on the base for almost 3 years, his contract nearing an end, and with his flight back to earth scheduled only 14 days away, he can’t wait to get back home to see his wife and daughter again. However, suddenly one of the automated moon-vehicles (harvesting rock-samples or whatever) goes awry, and he goes outside of the base to investigate it… but then something unexpected happens, and he has to change his perspective on everything.
