Lucy in the Sky (2019)
Last night, a friend and I were talking about interesting movies that have 5.0 ratings or less – really interesting movies. Lucy in the Sky is one of them. It has a 4.5 rating on IMDb and even worse on Metacritic and Rotten Tomatoes.
Like most drama films, you can’t really tell why some people didn’t like it and I really don’t want to know. I was going to watch it anyway. I had seen Natalie Portman and John Hamm in the trailer and I thought to spend some time on it. It turned out fine for me – A realistic drama inspired by true-life events.
This is not a sci-fi, action or a space movie. Take note.
The movie tells the story of astronaut Lucy Cola, when she returns to Earth after a transcendent experience during a mission to space, and begins to lose touch with reality in a world that now seems too small.
