The Lucy in the Sky trailer is the new film starring Natalie Portman and comes via the hands of Noah Hawley who headed up the TV series Fargo and now this is first foray into directing feature films and very good this looks too with a whiff of award nominations about it.
Natalie Portman plays an astronaut who returns to Earth after a lengthy mission and begins to slowly unravel and lose touch with reality. She begins an affair with a fellow astronaut (Jon Hamm), going into a downward spiral as she loses her connection to her husband (Dan Stevens) and family.
Originally titled “Pale Blue Dot,” and loosely based on former astronaut Lisa Nowak, the film also stars Zazie Beetz, Ellen Burstyn, Nick Offerman and Colman Domingo and will premiere at the Toronto Film Festival on September 11th 2019. Reese Witherspoon was originally slated to take the lead role as well as produce but dropped out due to filming commitments on her successful TV series Big Little Lies. Whether there will be a famous Beatles song on the soundtrack remains to be seen.
The film is slated to open October 4th.
