INTERSTELLAR: -- families that space out together stray together
‘Interstellar’ is really about how much we care about family
Christopher Nolan’s latest foray into filmmaking comes in the form of “Interstellar” — a film that spanned across time and space, changing the way people think about their place on Earth and the universe. It’s a film that reminds viewers to look at the sky and contemplate their beliefs in the ancient gods, the cosmos and heavens above.
Similarly, Anne Hathaway’s character, Brand, searches the deep reaches of space for a long-lost loved one, a fellow scientist who went on a similar journey as she. Like Cooper, Brand’s motivation to save humankind is to reach someone she loved who she’s lost. Like she says, love — no matter who it’s for — transcends time and space.
The film also talks about how a parent’s instincts come into play when close to death. People experience death dreams — or, life review, where their life flashes before their eyes before death — because it motivates them to stay alive for their families, according to Cinema Blend.
“They determine that when a person is dying, they see their children,” the theory says. “This human connection prompts us — mankind — to fight death, to struggle to stay alive longer. We want to see our kids again.”
