Moon

Just saw this movie today, as it finally opened in Pittsburgh, and I urge you to see this film as soon as possible if you haven't already missed your chance. Here in Pittsburgh it's playing at the Regent Square theatre (a local theatre run by Pittsburgh Filmmakers) until Thursday. I think it's also playing at the Loews Waterfront multiplex.

Anyway, Moon represents the best kind of Science Fiction. The story cannot function without its science fictional aspects, but it is essentially about the effects of those aspects on the people involved in the story. Sam Rockwell does an exceptional job communicating all this.
