Spaceman (2024)

Adam Sandler is an astronaut trying to discover that work/life balance while exploring the depths of the universe and his past with the help of a therapy space creature (Paul Dano). Carey Mulligan plays the astronaut’s wife, struggling with that relatable feeling of the very thing that makes you love someone can be the same thing that pulls you apart. 

Based on a 2017 novel Spaceman of Bohemia by Jaroslav Kalfař, this science fiction drama gives off vibes of Solaris (1972) and Interstellar (2014).

While there were aspects of the writing that were a little heavy handed at times, I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this movie. Thoughtful performances by Sandler and Mulligan. And even the giant space spider had some good moments.

Currently available on Netflix.
