Ad Astra

Space, the loneliest frontier.

An emotionally-damaged son goes on an interstellar trek to find his distant, foreboding father, with the possible fate of the galaxy at stake in this beautifully-rendered sci-fi flick.

There’s some space pirates, and a killer baboon or two, tossed in to keep the eyeballs jumping, but this is much more about ideas than shoot-em-up theatrics.

Brad Pitt gives us some solid brooding, while Tommy Lee Jones is just about the perfect poster boy for aloof, fanatical fathers who have scarred their offspring, and couldn’t care less.

Remember, no one can hear you cry in space.
