Sam Bell (Sam Rockwell) is nearing the completion of his 3-year-long contract with Lunar Industries, mining Earth's primary source of energy on the dark side of the moon. Alone with only the base's vigilant computer Gerty (voiced by Oscar®-Winner Kevin Spacey, 1999 Best Actor, American Beauty) as his sole companion, Bell's extended isolation has taken its toll. His only link to the outside world comes from satellite messages from his wife and young daughter. He longs to return home, but a terrible accident on the lunar surface leads to a disturbing discovery that contributes to his growing sense of paranoia and dislocation so many miles away from home. Moon is an engrossing, intelligent sci-fi thriller that ranks with genre classics like 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Common Sense Says
Thought-provoking sci-fi has some violence, strong language.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Moon is a superb psychological sci-fi drama with some emotionally big ideas and some strong language. Starring Sam Rockwell as Sam, a lone astronaut with just a computer (voiced by Kevin Spacey) for company, the movie touches on themes that range from isolation and unethical corporate behavior to the very nature of existence and what it means to be human. Positive character traits include compassion, empathy, and teamwork. Sam uses bad language when under stress, including "f--k," "s--t," and "goddammit." The movie has some scenes of violence, with a fist fight that results in a bloody nose and some mild body horror elements as a character's body starts to decay, during which they vomit blood and lose a tooth. There is also a vehicle crash with mild bloody injury and a character accidentally burns their hand with boiling water. One brief scene between a couple sees a woman strip to her underwear. A man's naked bottom is shown in the shower. With its existential themes, families will have much to discuss when this thought-provoking movie is over.
