Director Alfonso Cuaron doesn’t just paint a dazzling and compelling portrait of an emotionally stunted medical engineer (Sandra Bullock) and a roguish astronaut (George Clooney) who must find a way to survive after being stranded in space when their shuttle is destroyed. He also transports us to that cold vacuum as an ad hoc participant.
Woody Grant (Bruce Dern) has received a sweepstakes letter in the mail notifying him he has won $1 million. Although everyone tries to convince him it’s just a promotional ploy to get him to buy magazines, Woody is willing to walk from his home in Billings, Mont., to the prize center in Lincoln, Neb. When it’s obvious that no one can shake Woody of his fool’s dream, his son David (Will Forte) agrees to drive him.
Also out this week
“Thor: The Dark World”: When Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) is possessed by a great power, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) must protect her from a new threat of old times: the Dark Elves.
