Interstellar is a space odyssey, a science fiction and fantasy movie set in the near future about a team of explorers who has to travel beyond the galaxy in order to discover if there is a habitable place where the human race has a future as life on Earth is coming to an end as the Earth is dying and no longer able to sustain life where dust covers everything.
Food supply is destroyed by blight and corn is the only remaining viable plant and the only source of food available. The human race is in a survival mode; nations disbanded their military and without the need for pilots and engineers, Cooper retired to his family farm. He has to leave the farm and his family to lead a team of scientist and astronomers to find a planet that is able to support human life.
The team of astronomers led by Cooper and accompanied by Amelia has identified three planets as possible candidates of sustaining human life. In order to reach these planets, the team of scientific explorers has to pass thru a wormhole near Saturn and shoot into another galaxy where they experienced gravitational anomaly and space-time disturbances.
The movie is very ambitious but suffers from holes in its plot. It is based on flawed science fiction, a subject that is hard to grasp but the movie has great musical score and incredible visuals. Interstellar is beautiful to look at but its subject is hard to grasp and understand; most would have a hard time making heads and tails out of it.
It stars Matthew McConaughey as Cooper, Anne Hathaway as Amelia, Jessica Chastain as young Murph, Ellen Burstyn as old Murph, Michael Caine as Professor Brand, and Matt Damon as Dr. Mann. Directed by Christopher Nolan.
