GRAVITY

In this critically acclaimed sci-fi drama, Sandra Bullock stars as Ryan Stone, who on her first mission is stranded in space when her shuttle is destroyed by debris. The collaboration of Cuarón, cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki and a team of talented artisans create cinema that will take your breath away even if your oxygen supply is unlimited. “In depicting the fearful, beautiful reality of the space world above our world, GRAVITY reveals the glory of cinema’s future; it thrills on so many levels.” – Richard Corliss, Time
