Sixteen-year-old Gardner Elliot (Asa Butterfield) has lived his whole life with a team of scientists on Mars. He’s always longed to see Earth to find the father he’s never known and to meet a beautiful street-smart girl named Tulsa he’s become friends with online. But when his chance finally comes, doctors discover his heart can’t withstand the Earth’s atmosphere. Eager to find his father, Gardner and Tulsa escape on a cross-country race against time to unravel the mysteries of how he came to be and where he belongs in the universe. Gary Oldman and Carla Gugino also star in this heartfelt and inspiring romantic adventure about how far one person can go for love.
From the first time I saw the trailer for this Movie, I knew I wanted to watch it. The whole concept seemed like it would be interesting and romantic.
I didn’t realize that Carla Gugino was in this movie until after it started. And I’m totally glad she was. She is slowly becoming one of my favorite actresses. I’ve seen tons of movies/tv shows that she’s in (Gerald’s Game, San Andreas, New Girl, Mr. Popper’s Penguins, Californication, Sucker Punch, Night at the Museum and Son-In-Law just to name a few).
I absolutely loved the chemistry between Gardner and Tulsa. Young love is so romantic and innocent. It brings back memories of how it feels when you first get to know someone (especially when you are a teenager). All the passion and love is overwhelming and shows on your face.
This is a sweet movie with some ups and downs but with a really good ending.
Do you feel like Gardner’s birth should have been covered up or the public informed? Were you surprised by who Gardner’s father was?
