Christopher Nolan’s laudable and well-known commitment to celluloid ensured that his latest opus was released on a wide range of formats, both analogue and digital, and the IFI is delighted to have the opportunity to present Interstellar in 70mm.
In the near future, when environmental catastrophe has all but destroyed crop production, Cooper (Matthew McConaughey, turning in another in a line of recent strong performances) is enlisted to explore potentially inhabitable words which might prove mankind’s salvation. Accompanying him on his mission is Amelia (Anne Hathaway), daughter of his former mentor, John Brand (Michael Caine). An undeniably grand spectacle which is all the more impressive in this larger, high-resolution format, at its core it is more simply the story of the love between Cooper and his daughter, Murph (played at various ages by the impressive Mackenzie Foy, Jessica Chastain, and Ellen Burstyn).
