Dr. Ryan Stone is a brilliant engineer on her first shuttle mission with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalski. On a seemingly routine spacewalk, disaster strikes. The shuttle is destroyed, leaving Stone and Kowalski completely alone, tethered to nothing but each other and spiraling out into the darkness. As fear turns to panic, every gulp of air eats away at what little oxygen is left. But the only way home may be to go farther out into the terrifying expanse of space.
"Alfonso Cuarón's Gravity, about astronauts coping with disaster, is a huge and technically dazzling film....For long stretches, Cuarón trusts Bullock to give us a one-woman show, and she delivers." -- Roger Ebert
