This film is for a very special type of person! Does this mean you?

This film is what's known as a 'bottle' show. That meaning, the action takes place predominantly in one room. Now, if the story is interesting enough, then these plots can actually be quite engrossing. However, disaster movies are seldom unique enough to hold ones interest (especially in 'bottle' shows).
Having said that, this movie was actually quite good....the drawback being you really have to be a certain type of person to appreciate it!
What do I mean?
Well, if you have been trapped in a bad set of circumstances for years and years and years with no hope of escape then you will know EXACTLY what this Astronaut was going through. You will share his range of emotions as he approaches his situation with the following range of attitudes:
- Stabilizing his situation,
- Acceptance of his new surroundings,
- Becoming 'Strange' to others,
- Becoming a Loner,
- Appreciation of his solitude,
- Learning things others could not,
- Being unable to fit back into Human society, and finally
- A determination to sacrifice himself to complete his mission!
Thats the point of the story....the 2 and a half years he spent going through his myriad of emotions PREPARED him for the one way trip that only he could make!
So it is in life! If you have ever experienced the unfortunate set of circumstances where you are trapped for years, with no way out, then you will identify with each and every single one of the stages of this Astronauts experiential emotions! This film will therefore give you hope that such experiences prepare you for something unique in life that only you can do!
Will you learn from this Astronauts example and embrace your chained circumstances and use what you have learned for a unique mission?
Its really up to you!
