Lucy in the Sky
NATALIE PORTMAN IS AN ASTRONAUT LOST ON EARTH. Astronaut Lucy Cola (Natalie Portman) has just had an experience few people get – seeing the vastness of space in all its cold, transcendent glory. But upon reentry, how can she square her normal, suburban family life with her incomprehensible cosmic voyage? She gains some temporary respite in an affair with fellow astronaut Mark Goodwin (Jon Hamm), but when things go south, she finds herself more troubled than ever, and willing to go to desperate ends to gain peace of mind. Loosely based on real-life events, this gorgeously shot space drama is the thrillingly ambitious debut of director Noah Hawley, who previously worked on acclaimed shows Fargo and Legion. Portman channels spectacular emotional highs and lows as a professional scientist trying to keep composure as her life spirals into chaos. Joined by Zazie Beetz (Atlanta) as a space-faring colleague and Dan Stevens (Legion) as her civilian husband, LUCY IN THE SKY is a journey into the intense personal conflict at the heart of tremendous human experience.
