All you really need to know about this film, which has met with so-called 'universal acclaim' from the critics, is that you should go and see it. Now. In 3D. On the biggest screen you can find. Set during a routine mission to the Hubble telescope, things go dramatically wrong, leaving an astronaut stranded alone in space, with one slim chance of surviving. This film is releasing in both 2D and 3D, this is the (highly recommended) 3D version.
Themes are stranded in space, overcoming difficult circumstances, the indomitable human spirit, determination, positive outcomes, overcoming adversity, the will to survive, trust, self reliance, wits and patriotism.
