Defying Gravity


Matt Kowalski: What do you like about being here, other than the view?
Ryan Stone: <Pause> I like the silence…

The popular story we learn in school is that, Newton discovered the Universal law of Gravitation when an apple fell on his head, while he was sitting under an apple tree. And hence the adage: what goes up, must come down.

What happens when you defy gravity, leave the pull of the center of the earth and are suspended in space and time?

Weightlessness is something astronauts have experienced since the beginning of manned spaceflight.

***Spoiler Alert***

Gravity is a different kind of movie. If you love space, this is for you. Granted it might not satisfy all the laws of physics associated with space travel. Still it is one incredible movie.

If you love Clooney, he is as usual at his best. Albeit briefly.

Gravity is one hell of a movie. Of loss and triumph. If you craved to be in space and failed, this will put you there. If you are a space fanatic, it is a must see. When was the last time you saw a movie of two people in spacesuits and the immenseness of space?
