Overview

Welcome to the near future – a time when interplanetary tourism is the norm, corporations have co-opted outer space and pirates roam the moon. Thirty years earlier, celebrated astronaut Clifford McBride (Tommy Lee Jones) led a voyage into deep space, but his ship and crew were never heard from again. Now his stoic son Major Roy McBride (Brad Pitt) must embark on a dangerous mission to Neptune to uncover the truth about his missing father and a series of mysterious power surges that threaten the very existence of Earth’s solar system. Co-starring Ruth Negga, Donald Sutherland and Liv Tyler, Ad Astra is a totally bold, technically mesmerising and surprisingly thoughtful sci-fi treasure – described by Richard Brody of The New Yorker as “an instant classic of intimate cinema”.

"Sublime and stupendous. Beautiful, bold and remarkably executed, this is Gray’s masterpiece, driven by a career-best turn from Pitt."
— Total Film
"It’s an extraordinary picture, steely and unbending and assembled with an unmistakable air of wild-eyed zealotry."
— The Guardian
"Brad Pitt's star quality shines in an existential sci-fi spectacular."
— The Telegraph UK
"One of the most ruminative, withdrawn, and curiously optimistic space epics this side of 'Solaris'. It's also one of the best."
— Indiewire

Why You Should See This Film

When first announcing the film, virtuoso director James Gray (The Immigrant, The Lost City of Z) said that he planned to make “the most realistic depiction of space travel that's been put in a movie”. We dare say he’s succeeded in that goal, crafting a meticulous space-scape that feels as tangible as it does out-of-reach. Of course, this all hinges on the haunting Brad Pitt performance at the film’s core, his delicate and hypnotising rendering of a son in search of lost time already gathering well-deserved Oscar buzz.
