Eva Green gives a career-best performance in this epic and emotionally charged new drama from acclaimed director Alice Winocour. Green plays Sarah, a French astronaut training at the European Space Agency in Cologne. The only woman in the arduous programme she has been chosen to be part of the crew of a year-long space mission called 'Proxima'. Putting enormous strain on her relationship with her daughter (played by outstanding newcomer Zelie Boulant-Lemesle), the training begins to take its toll on both as Sarah's training progresses and the launch looms ever closer. Featuring stunning performances from the entire cast which includes Matt Dillon, Lars Eidinger and Sandra Huller, 'Proxima' is an unmissable cinematic experience which will take you on a gripping, emotional and life-affirming journey.
This was a very well produced and interesting movie with an unusual storyline - how a lady astronaut copes with the preparations for a space flight to Mars while looking after her young daughter.
Sadly the movie was ruined for me by the storyline going awol in the last 5 mins !

Interesting and enjoyable film
- Proxima review by AW
A really interesting film to watch with excellent acting by all of the participants, especially Eva Green (Sarah). The film provides an insight into the arduous and demanding space training involved both physically and mentally and the effect this has on the space crew's family, especially Sarah's daughter. Eva Green makes her role personal. Definitely worth watching this film - highly recommended.
