This intense and heart-felt drama brings to mind Alfonso Cuarón’s GRAVITY, Robert Zemeckis’ CONTACT ,Christopher Nolan’s INTERSTELLAR and Ridley Scott’s THE MARTIAN.
Picturehouse Entertainment announce the Home
Entertainment release of PROXIMA, the epic and emotionally charged
new drama from acclaimed director Alice Winocour starring Eva Green
and Matt Dillon.
Sarah (Green) is a French astronaut training at the European Space Agency in Cologne. The only woman in the arduous training programme, she has been chosen to be part of the crew of a year-long space mission called ‘Proxima’. Putting enormous strain on her relationship with her seven-year-old daughter Stella (played by outstanding newcomer Zélie Boulant-Lemesle), the training begins to take its toll on them both as the life-changing launch looms ever closer.
Featuring stunning performances from the entire cast, which also
includes Matt Dillon (Crash), Sandra Hüller (Toni Erdmann) and
Aleksey Fateev (Loveless), Winocour’s new film is a stunningly
cinematic experience which will take audiences on a gripping,
emotional and life-affirming journey, and boasts a stirring score
from world-renowned composer and musician Ryuichi Sakamoto.
Alice Winocour’s first feature film, Augustine, played in the
Semaine de la Critique at Cannes and was nominated for two César
awards in France. She went on to direct the thriller Disorder
(2015) starring Matthias Schoenaerts and Diane Kruger, which she
returned to Cannes with. 2015 also saw Mustang, the Oscar-nominated
drama that she co-wrote with Deniz Gamze Ergüven, released to wide acclaim.
PROXIMA is her third feature film.
