Movie Info

Lucidia is a teenage cyber-goth whose mother died mysteriously seven years ago in the family swimming pool. Her father Gabriel is an archaeologist who can't move on. When Lucidia disappears in an apparent alien abduction, Gabriel is forced to confront her strange outsider friends and meets Tegan, a girl obsessed with unicorns and black holes. Emotional and audacious, the story is told from multiple points of view in an intriguing ride through a constellation of characters who are pulled together by teenage gravity, surrounded by adults who also feel the same irresistible pull as they orbit their own elusive identities, all looking for a universe to call their own.


Critic Reviews for Spaceship

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (4)

  • Spaceship is laden thick with production design. Locations speak to the film's banal residential setting, while the costumes, hair and make-up veritably bellow, "Yes, we are all individuals!"

  • Director Alex Taylor has established himself as a talent with his short films and I wanted to like this, but it feels humourless and smug.

  • This micro-budget British indie feels like an unintentional parody of experimental cinema.

  • It might have worked as a collection of DayGlo YouTube music videos, but the story of an alien abduction -- or perhaps just an Ecstasy-fuelled fantasy -- turns into self-indulgent ennui.

  • The effect is dreamlike, trippy, a saturation of colour and music, not always explained but eventually with an emotional and joyful resolution.

  • Taylor seems bored by his own story and quickly introduces secondary and tertiary characters of diminishing importance to jolt a line that was doing just fine on its own.
