Cahill's ambitious debut uses the extraordinary astronomical spectacle at its centre as a means to explore the earthly preoccupations of his two drifting, grieving protagonists; but importantly, he also doesn't shy away from asking big questions.
when you think that the film is really about Rhoda and John's slow orbit - their twinned trajectory of regret and redemption - the planetary plot comes crashing back, delivering an ending that is, in its obliquity and openness, exquisitely perfect.
Cahill's visually inconsistent first feature tries to beam epic sci-fi concepts into a micro-human drama, refracting its thought-provoking ideas through the prism of the central emotional relationship.
