Pointless Nonsense

stowawayStowaway is Netflix’s movie about a mission to Mars with an unexpected extra passenger, and the challenges they run into as a result. Toni Collette, Daniel Dae Kim, Anna Kendrick, and a Canadian guy who’s been on a ton of sci fi shows but didn’t make enough of an impression for me to remember.

It might have been better suited as like an anthology episode. I’m not sure the story merits just shy of two hours, but it’s pretty decent.

It reminded me a bit of Away, the Hillary Swank series that got axed after a season, but without the back home aspect. I am kind of a sucker for the ship environment as a setting for drama. Extremely competent people trapped in a claustrophobic space where small problems can easily turn catastrophic? Good stuff.
