Astronauts Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway journey to a distant galaxy on a desperate mission to save humanity in this brainy, heartfelt, gorgeous and flawlessly acted sci-fi epic — inspired by “2001: A Space Odyssey,’’ “Close Encounters of the Third Kind’’ and less likely sources such as “The Grapes of Wrath.’’
It’s the near future, 10 years after Earth began turning into a gigantic dust bowl, where those who don’t starve when crops wither soon face asphyxiation as nitrogen levels gradually rise in the atmosphere – Lou Lumenick for New York Post.
