Written by Christopher and Jonathan Nolan, Interstellar is one of those movies you have to watch from the start and try not to blink. If you do, you just might miss something big. It revolves around a dystopian future, where humanity is struggling to survive on Earth. As viewers, we follow a group of astronauts who travel through a wormhole near Saturn in search of a new home for humanity. The main character is Joseph Cooper, played by Matthew McConaughey. He has to give up seeing his kids grow up to go on this mission, as years will pass before he will make it back. Yet decades end up passing, far more than he realized.
