Hailed as one of the best films of the year that was 2013, and rightly so, Gravity is a heart-pounding, profoundly beautiful, piece of science fiction that is unlike anything you have ever quite seen before.

Up beyond the reaches of our atmosphere, Medical Engineer Dr. Ryan Stone (Bullock) is on her first space mission with the seasoned veteran astronaut Matt Kowalski (Clooney). Whilst on a routine mission repairing satellites above the Earth, a freak accident sends a fiery wave of debris hurtling towards Stone and Kowalski's team. Surviving the accident but left stranded in space, the two must work together to find the means of returning to Earth.

You've seen films set in space before, but I can guarantee they have never been like this. A stunning feat of technical genius and simple plot mechanics develop a thrilling visceral experience that will have you on the edge of your seat, eyes glued to the wonder and awe on the screen. Led by two affecting and confident performances from Bullock and Clooney, Gravity is a film of fierce efficiency in regards to character and action, giving you just enough character depth to grasp on to once the action begins.

Gravity is the sort of film that can only be truly experienced on the big screen, so do not miss the opportunity to catch it while you can. Beneath the layers of visual splendour lie deep themes and stirring imagery that will continue to capture imaginations for years to come.
