Superstar George Clooney turns in a stellar performance in this thrilling sci-fi movie from Academy Award winners Steven Soderbergh and James Cameron. Aboard a lonely space station orbiting a mysterious planet, terrified crew members are experiencing a host of strange phenomena, including eerie visitors who seem all too human. And when psychologist Chris Kelvin (Clooney) arrives to investigate, he confronts a power beyond imagining that could hold the key to mankind's deepest dreams... or darkest nightmares.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Critics Consensus: Slow-moving, cerebral, and ambiguous, Solaris is not a movie for everyone, but it offers intriguing issues to ponder.

Existential sci-fi drama has language, sex, adult themes.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Solaris is a sci-fi drama -- at once based on a book and a remake of a 1972 version -- that explores adult themes and contains sex, nudity, and some language. The movie combines often abstract, metaphysical musings with a more immediate study of grief and desire. While investigating a space station, psychologist Chris Kelvin (George Clooney) begins to see his deceased wife, Rheya (Natascha McElhone). Romance is at the heart of the movie, and sexual intercourse is portrayed, including full nudity from behind. Occasional strong language includes "f--king" and "s--t," and dead bodies and blood stains are shown. While some of the adult themes include philosophical and existential dilemmas, there are also references to abortion and characters taking their own lives. Alcohol is consumed on occasion, and prescription pills are taken. Some younger viewers may find the slow pace and lack of action difficult to stick with.
