The Midnight Sky Movie Story Line

Scientist Augustine Lofthouse has devoted her life to finding a habitable planet on which humanity can thrive. He met Jean Sullivan after an initial presentation, and the two were romantically involved. After Jean became afraid of the pregnancy. She gave up the pregnancy because she was obsessed with work and could not contact other people. A few years later, Lofthouse tracked him down and told him he had a daughter he didn’t want to meet.

Clooney went on to direct the movie “The Monuments Men” (2014) and fell off a cliff. A WWII war robbery thriller about art stolen by the Nazis. It has a strong theme and a great cast, but it’s a whimsical movie that stands there like Clooney’s creative machine has stopped.

Of course, every filmmaker has the right to make mistakes, and I think Clooney invented Suburbicon (2017). A fast-paced thriller set in the Central American “Mad Men” Meet Coen Brothers. But in “The Midnight Sky”, Clooney ended up in a different ditch.

The Midnight Sky passes between the terrifying journey of Iris and Augustine and the return journey of the ferry driven by the pregnant woman Sully Rembshire (Felicity Jones). He is the captain of the ship, which includes his partner Tom (David Oyelowo), Maya (Tiffany Boone), Sánchez (Demian Bichir) and Mitchell (Kyle Chandler). For most of the movie, Sully and his team don’t know what’s going on on Earth, so overcome the dangers of space to return to their devastated homeland.

George Clooney and Felicity Jones in The Midnight Sky Movie

The problem started with the writing, but unfortunately most of the blame lies with the director. The scenario describes all kinds of relationships between the different parts. Between the past and the present, between the earthly Augustine (plus surprise visitor) and the ether crew who still do not know that for them there is no home in the world. Suffice it to say, it’s the down-to-earth architecture of all these connections that weighs on all of these connections in the movie. Especially since it comes out of so many movies without the pleasure of pastiche flowers: the movie reproduces it. painful.

One day, in the sad gift, Agustín finds another soul in the large and empty observatory: a girl named Iris (Caoilinn Springal). Who appears to have been afflicted with the same film sickness that affected many girls in adulthood.

Film: it is completely silent. With a small child to care for, sad Augustine, who had previously been involved in the slow and certain death of the last man on Earth, suddenly found urgency in his life.

Sci-fi fans will no doubt take The Midnight Sky very seriously, and influences from movies like Interstellar. The Martian and Ad Astra haven’t always been in their favor. However, others will respond to your thoughtful maturity.

Clooney wears his old hat while watching Mitchell’s final scene in Stanley Kramer’s On the Beach. Here, the director and writer vividly sees the fate of the wounded planet. Reminiscent of the post-1959 nuclear drama that gave mankind hope despite high expectations.
