Picked up this DVD cheap, expecting the worst. I was pleasantly surprised by this little indie film. The story follows a group of space explorers making a trip to the new world, Aurora. Things go terribly wrong and our space explorers are forced to crash land. Now, Aurora is not for everyone. It takes its time and is purely character driven (not action driven at all). In short, I was engaged by the story, beautiful photography, nice acting, directing and moving score. And unlike most sci-fi films, I actually felt for the characters and their plight; to survive a four hundren mile trek across the vast arid landscape. Check it out, but remember, the film was clearly produced for nothing and it should not be labled a sci-fi. This is an indie-drama and it's bad at all!
