FRI­DAY THE MARTIAN

WITH LEIGH PAATSCH

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - FRONT PAGE -

8.30PM, FOXTEL MASTERPIECE Sci­ence-fic­tion on the big screen rarely gets as in­stantly com­pelling, yet ca­su­ally crowd­pleas­ing, as it does in this stir­ring tale of im­pro­vised sur­vival on a des­o­late planet. Matt Da­mon stars as an as­tro­naut ac­ci­den­tally left for dead on Mars af­ter a mon­ster storm. What fol­lows is an in­cred­i­bly in­volv­ing (and sur­pris­ingly plau­si­ble) yarn about find­ing re­silience, re­source­ful­ness and hu­mour in sit­u­a­tions where none of these things should be re­motely pos­si­ble. Directed by Ri­d­ley Scott.
