Stowaway

Stowaway ★★★

A more realistic sci fi story in the same vein as The Martian or Gravity which is nice for a change. We dont need aliens in every movie set in space.

I really like the opening and the end of the film, it is the middle where I have some issues with the pacing and characterization. I thought it mostly consisted of people looking straight ahead. And I cant fully support the decision to let the communication with Earth be so muted.

The movie looks good and the actors do fine work and it is especially nice to see Anna Kendrick in a more serious role than usual. She is not a great actor but she is very likeable.
