Emotionally charged space drama Proxima
If you’re a fan of space dramas you’ll love French director Alice Winocour’s third feature, Proxima. It follows French astronaut Sarah Loreau as she trains for a year-long space mission, which means leaving young daughter Stella behind. It’s available to watch now in cinemas nationwide.
Dir Alice Winocour
In this epic and emotionally charged new drama from acclaimed director Alice Winocour, Eva Green plays Sarah, a French astronaut training at the European Space Agency in Cologne. The only woman in the arduous programme, she has been chosen to be part of the crew of a year-long space mission called ‘Proxima’. Putting enormous strain on her relationship with her daughter (newcomer Zélie Boulant-Lemesle), the training begins to take its toll on both as Sarah’s training progresses and the launch looms ever closer.
“An intimate space drama that’s emotionally down-to-earth”
