As the biggest Christopher Nolan fanboy, my expectations for his latest film were set incredibly high. And despite the odd problem here and there, I wasn’t disappointed. Interstellar was Nolan’s first venture into the sci-fi genre and starred many big name actors, including Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain and, because it’s a Nolan film, Michael Caine. In a world where food supplies are running out and the possibility of a real human extinction in just a generation, former pilot Cooper (McConaughey) is tasked on leading a team into a wormhole to find a new suitable home for mankind. But once through the wormhole, nothing is quite what it seems.
Now before I go any further, I must warn everyone that I’m about to go into SPOILER territory, so if you haven’t seen Interstellar yet, you have been warned.
Still here? Good, then let’s travel through the wormhole.
