Gravity

Film Appearance

Clooney plays astronaut Lieutenant Matt Kowalski in this science fiction thriller written and directed by Alfonso Cuaron. Kowalski is on a mission with medical engineer Dr. Ryan Stone, played by Sandra Bullock, when their shuttle is destroyed by high speed debris from a damaged Russian satellite. Kowalski saves Stone from drifting off into space and then together they must find a way to get back to Earth.

The great thing about this film is it’s an argument for coming to a theater and seeing it on a big screen. To find films that make sense and make it an event to come here and do that, I think that’s extraordinary.
