Well this is going to be a tricky review, and the reason why is because I'm not in love with this movie like most critics were. The story is about a father named Cooper (Matthew McConaughey), who is trying to raise his two children in a dying world that is constantly plagued with dust storms. When Cooper is given the opportunity to go into space and see about the possibility of living on a new planet he jumps on it, much to the disappointment of his daughter Murph. Through a series of events that causes time to move much more quickly for his children then for him, as well as having little results of finding another planet for the human race to move to due a loss of resources. At some point, Cooper begins to wonder what was the point, is there a way to change what has happened, and if he would see his children again. The end of the story is very sad in one sense, and very hopeful in another, but leaves the viewer, in my opinion, unsatisfied at the end as it seems the story is unfinished. The acting, and special effects in this film I will say were incredible; there is no question in my mind that this film will be a one of the leading contenders at the Oscars for 2015. I felt there was more that could have been done with this film, and I wish I could have liked a lot more than I did. I felt this film could have done with happier ending, and more exploration of planets.
