Stowaway

Oscar-nominees Anna Kendrick and Toni Collette join Daniel Dae Kim (Lost) and Shamier Anderson (Destroyer) for this claustrophobic space thriller from the director of 2018's Arctic.

A three-person space mission suddenly becomes four when the crew discover an unconscious stowaway. Too late to turn back to Earth, the flustered man (Anderson) has no choice but to accompany the trained astronauts throughout their journey. However, when an unforeseeable incident leaves only enough oxygen for three people, it puts the crew in a moral quandary.

It's a clever take on a familiar genre with a terrific cast, but the slow burn may be too slow.

By paring their story down so much, the filmmakers only end up highlighting just how little it contains.

Shrewd in its decision-making and even better in its execution.

Sci-fi of the thoughtful, (sometimes too) slow-paced variety.

While there are still seat-edge moments from the big set piece that closes the film out, it’s just a bit too conventional in how it plays out.
