Moon is a futuristic sci-fi thriller about an astronaut stationed on a lunar mining station with only a robot for company until strange things start to happen.
It isn’t often that you get an intelligent low-budget sci-fi film, but this first-time effort by director Duncan Jones is highly impressive.
To say too much more about the plot would give away too much as it takes off in interesting and unexpected directions.
Given the budgetary limitations, it looks terrific with clever use of sets and special effects, but the biggest highlight of all is Rockwell who gives a remarkable performance in what is largely a one man show.
Kevin Spacey also provides nice support as the voice of the base computer GERTY.
