Moral dilemmas and decay surround the interactions between the space team Cooper, Brand, Romilly played by David Gyasi, Doyle played by Wes Bentley, and the enigmatic Mann played by Matt Damon. The images and scenes of space are so convincing and thrilling that I left the theatre feeling like Earth really was a different space, every ventilation system and closed-in area felt like a space cabin. The film propelled my mind into a new world which was novel and entertaining. The story, written by Jonathan Nolan and Christopher Nolan takes place across a lifetime and we get to watch Cooper and his family (John Lithgow, Timothee Chalamet, Mackenzie Foy, Jessica Chastain, Casey Affleck) evolve past what little interaction they had on Earth through the sequential unveiling of information related to Cooper’s space exploration.
Nolan brings us full circle – never leaving the emotional intimacy in outer space but returning us back again to our humanity. The stirring journey we experience, the alternate dimensions of space exploration seem to point up our limitations. Nevertheless, we realize that the enormity of outer space and our place in it cannot be solved by the forces of physics alone but ultimately can by the force of love.
