Through Struggle to the Stars – 98 Years of the Royal Australian Air Force
Feedback Submitted. My life appeared perfect: successful, a wife, a home, a picket fence, two kids, and two cars. However, inside I was angry, anxious, a void. I embarked on a year period of substance abuse. My life unravelled.
Voyager Golden Record: Through Struggle to the Stars
We never find out—the film is more than sketchy on background details. Pitt plays Roy McBride, a career astronaut of such intrepidity that reputedly his pulse has never risen above McBride takes a tumble too, as does the camera, spinning wildly in midair. That ominous THWUMP , it turns out, was caused by a series of electrical storms in space, causing power surges so massive that they threaten to destroy the very solar system.
He will be accompanied by an old friend of his father, Colonel Pruitt, played by Donald Sutherland. Super-focused Roy undertakes never to be distracted from his task, but Gray operates differently: this episodic odyssey, which he wrote with Ethan Gross, is constantly sidelined by eccentric detours.
Later comes a curious pitstop on Mars, a dreamlike sequence that seems to be from yet another film. Eventually we get an anti-climactic final act with McBride Sr.

Seriously—can you see Tommy Lee Jones as a man who likes musicals? When Ad Astra departs from the look of the everyday, it can be magnificently strange.
Mars base features long monastic cloisters lit a deep claustrophobic red, with swathes of darkness that envelop you as you pass along them. McBride Sr. This is really an episode of rebirth in a Freudian saga that also comes liberally stocked with umbilical cords, as well as images of Roy hitched up to feeding tubes cut against images of him as a young boy.
But the detachment comes above all because Pitt drifts so insouciantly through it all: rarely more than quizzically rueful, his Roy McBride is the very opposite of a sweat-soaked, cigar-chomping action hero.

His McBride frays only very slightly, modestly, even in times of maximum crisis; the big payoff comes in the descent of a single manly tear, preceded by a close-up flicker in the corner of his eye. But Pitt makes you care about this conflicted hero, sensitive yet curiously uptight.
