Astronaut Roy McBride (Brad Pitt) blasts off on an intergalactic space odyssey to the outer reaches of the solar system in order to find his missing father (Tommy Lee Jones). But what he finds instead is a mystery that threatens the survival of our planet and challenges the nature of human existence as we know it.
Ad Astra (a Latin phrase meaning ‘to the stars’) is an ambitious sci-fi drama that marries beautiful planetary visuals with weighty themes of family and masculinity. James Gray (We Own the Night, The Lost City of Z) directs a cast including Jones, Donald Sutherland, Liv Tyler and Ruth Negga – with Brad Pitt in his second major role of the year after Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
