Clooney as astronauts Ryan Stone and
Matt Kowalsky. The mismatched pair must work together to survive after a freak accident leaves them helpless and adrift in space. While Bullock and Clooney are both superb, the astonishing attention to detail and heart-in-your-throat circumstances are the most thrilling elements – Gravity is exhilarating and is sure to leave you breathless.
