 Synopsis:      Superstar George Clooney turns in a stellar performance in this "brilliant sci-fi movie" (New York Daily News) from Academy Award® winners Steven Soderbergh (2000 - Best Director, Traffic) and James Cameron (1997 - Best Picture, Titanic).

     Aboard a lonely space station orbiting a mysterious planet, terrified crew members are experiencing a host of strange phenomena, including eerie visitors who seem all too human. And when psychologist Chris Kelvin (Clooney) arrives to investigate, he confronts a power beyond imagining that could hold the key to mankind's deepest dreams…or darkest nightmares. Co-starring Natascha McElhone and Jeremy Davies, Solaris is "mind-bending!" (Rolling Stone)
 Other Thoughts:  A throw back to the sci-fi of the 60's with all the polish of todays big budget cgi blockbusters. I loved it. It's the one of those movies you just sit back and take in.
