The Midnight Sky:

This post-apocalyptic tale follows Augustine, a lonely scientist in the Arctic, as he races to stop Sully and her fellow astronauts from returning home to a mysterious global catastrophe.

George Clooney stars as Augustine, so yeah I was gonna give this a whirl. Rather well-done drama, quite a few layers of the morals of the story and such. Probably better seen on the big screen, but, well, you know. I would definitely recommend it. The ending, while a little cliched, suits the story.

I am glad you enjoyed it. I wanted to and it had all the makings to be great but I found it dull and uninspiring on the whole, and at times the storytelling was muddling and clumsy. The [hide]sequence on the ice was one of the most ridiculous things I’ve ever seen[/hide] and the ending was trite and overly convenient.
