Interstellar

Christopher Nolan and his screenwriting brother Jonathan take audiences on yet another spellbinding journey — this time, a much more literal adventure in search of a new home for humanity, as planet Earth faces extinction. The discovery of a nearby wormhole triggers a frantic quest spearheaded by a former maverick NASA test pilot (Matthew McConaughey) with a young family that he wants to save along with the families of everyone else on our dying world. We know the Nolans can create dreamscapes, the likes of which we feel like we couldn’t wrap our minds around without their guidance, but advance word on Interstellar speaks to their ability to grip us on an emotional level that is as vast as the deep space void the film stares into. Good luck with that. (Opens wide Friday) (PG-13) Not screened in time for review
