Moon Movie Synopsis & Plot
A story about a man who mines the precious gas that holds the key to reversing the Earth's energy crisis.
Moon, Duncan Jones' directorial feature, is a rare sci-fi film in the vein of 2001: A Space Odyssey, Outland and Silent Running. With an almost throwback, vintage set design and visuals, Moon chooses to focus almost entirely on the psychological aspects of living in space alone. Sam Rockwell, perhaps one of only a few current actors who could play the lead role(s), excels as an employee on a three-year mission to man a power plant on the Moon. At times on the verge of death and other times at the peak of physicality (often both in the same scene), Rockwell appears to be one of the few remaining method actors. When he looks close to death, you believe it.
